Siljander's Trips Better than Auset's

Jaxon • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante
Mathias Siljander

Anders Auset opened to 225,000 with {j-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} from the button and got a call from Mathias Siljander from the big blind with {j-Spades}{9-Hearts}.

Siljander check-called a bet of 150,000 from Auset after the {10-Spades}{8-Clubs}{j-Clubs} came on the flop. Siljander check-called again, this time for 500,000 after the {5-Diamonds} came on the turn.

The {j-Hearts} on the river gave both players trips but Siljander had the higher kicker. Siljander checked again. Auset fired out for 850,000 and Siljander made the call to extend his chip lead.
