2016 Unibet Open Malta winner Martin Soukup is all set for another deep run at the Unibet Open. Soukup won the Main Event in Malta last year, cashing €65,000, which is still his only cash to date.
It would take a surprising turn of events for Soukup to not score his second cash, as the Czech sits at 250,000 after dragging a pot from Karsten Johansen. In a small blind against button situation, Soukup had the betting lead on a :::2s:::8h:::6c:::6s board and bet 19,000. Johansen called.
On the :::Kd river, Soukup checked and Johansen bet 40,000. The Czech took a deep breath before committing the calling chips.
Johansen mucked his hand face down and Soukup raked in the big pot without showdown.
