Smirnov Opens the Lead a Bit

[user66118] • Level 12: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Dan Smith raised to 40,000 from the button, and Mikhail Smirnov defended his big blind to see a flop.

It came {10-Diamonds} {9-Hearts} {3-Spades}, and Smirnov took the lead with 55,000 of his own chips. Smith surrendered.

On the next hand, Smirnov limped in from the button, and Smith took a free {7-Spades} {Q-Hearts} {5-Spades} flop. Now Smith took a cue from his opponent and led out with 25,000, but Smirnov called to see the {5-Clubs} hit the turn. Smith tried again with another 55,000, but Smirnov raised it up to 185,000 total, and Smith tanked and folded.
