That means big pots are guaranteed and we could easily see seven-figure pots in Season 11 due to the very deep stacks and action-packed line-up.
Andrew Robl wins the maximum from JRB: $567,000 Pot
The biggest pot of High Stakes Poker Season 11 Episode 1 is already larger than the biggest pot of Season 10, which promises a lot for what is still to come.
There is a straddle to $9,000. JRB raised from the cut-off to $20,000 with 10♠10♣. Andrew Robl looks at 6♦4♦ and decides to resteal by 3-betting to $90,000. Bellande calls and everybody else folds. Just like that there is already $197,000 in the middle before a flop is even dealt.
Heads-up to an interesting flop of A♣7♦5♣, which gives the preflop 3-bettor an Open-Ended Straight Draw, while JRB has second pair. Robl makes a $60,000 continuation bet and Bellande calls. Pot Size: $257,000
The 3♦ on the turn is arguably the best card in the deck for Andrew Robl not only giving him a straight but a redraw to a Straight Flush on top of that. Robl fires a $125,000 second barrel. Easy fold for JRB you might think, but he decides to make the call being drawing dead. Pot Size: $567,000
The 7♣ on the river is a not the card Andrew wanted to see as it completes both the flush and a full house and Robl consequently checks. JRB has $544K behind and could turn his hand into a bluff here. He indeed does go into the tank for 40 seconds, before surrendering and checking behind.
High Stakes legend Andrew Robl wins the biggest pot of High Stakes Poker Season 11 Episode 1 worth a whopping $567,000.
JRB Flops Trips Against Rick Salomon: $393,000 Pot
JRB was also involved in the second largest pot of High Stakes Poker Season 11 Episode 1.
Bellande makes a loose raise to $26,000 with Q♥3♥ from the cut-off and Rick Salomon defends his straddle with A♣6♥. Pot Size: $61,000
The flop of 6QQ is dangerous for Salomon as he flops Two Pair with top kicker, but JRB has him crushed with Trips. Rick checks, Jean-Robert bets $26,000 and Salomon snap-calls. Pot Size: $113,000
8♣ on the turn. Rick checks, Jean-Robert now sizes up to $65,000 and Salomon quickly check-calls again. Pot Size: $243,000
A beautifully looking A♠ on the river and Salomon checks for a third time. JRB chooses $150,000 (62% Pot) as value bet sizing.
Rick Salomon visibly doesn’t like it and stands up before saying “You got it big boy” and folding his hand. Good fold by Salomon, while JRB collects the $393,000 Pot.
