Phillips Gets The Lead Back With A Big Call

Get Carter!
Get Carter!
Raise to 250,000 from Phillips and Goodwin calls.

The flop of {10-Hearts} {J-Spades} {9-Diamonds} looks action-packed but both players check.

The {10-Clubs} comes on the turn and Goodwin bets 275,000. Phillips calls and the river is the {A-Hearts} and Goodwin bets 500,000.

Phillips makes the call and Goodwin flips {5-Clubs} {2-Clubs}. Phillips shows {K-Hearts} {2-Spades} and wins back some momentum.

Phillips called all-in on the first for his tournament life on the river with K-high so he's clearly not scared of making big calls.

Goodwin Takes The Chip Lead

On a {Q-Spades} {J-Hearts} {K-Spades} both players check the flop before Goodwin check-raises Phillips' 275,000 bet to 725,000 on the {2-Hearts} turn. But Phillips reraises now to 1,775,000 and Goodwin continually questions, "Do you want me to call?"

Goodwin then calls and the river is the {J-Clubs} and both players check.

Phillips mucks and Goodwin shows {K-?} {9-?} to win the pot.

Goodwin now holds a slight edge in chips.

Cowboys Can't Help Goodwin

Marc Goodwin raised his button but Phillips passed. Goodwin sadly showed him pocket kings -- "Nine-two," said a suddenly cheerful Phillips.

First Flop in Five

Phillips raised up his button and Goodwin called. A flop!

Flop: {5-Spades} {Q-Spades} {7-Diamonds}

Goodwin checked to Phillips who stuck in the inevitable continuation bet. A swift fold from Goodwin, and Phillips took it down.

Big Pot for Goodwin

Marc Goodwin limped in on the button and then called a raise to 375,000 from Carter Phillips.

They saw a {K-Clubs} {6-Hearts} {8-Clubs} flop and Goodwin called 400,000 from Phillips. Interesting.

Phillips proceeded to check the {3-Diamonds} turn and after a moment's thought Goodwin checked behind.

The river was the {3-Clubs}, bringing the flush. Phillips checked again, and now Goodwin bet 700,000. Many minutes elapsed while Phillips silently and expressionlessly thought about it. Finally, with a last peek at his hole cards, Phillips passed.

The stacks now stand at Phillips 8,745,000, Goodwin 5,630,000.

One Back For Goodwin...

Phillips raises to 250,000 and Goodwin says, "Go on then," and calls.

The flop is {10-Spades} {8-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} and both players check, the {Q-Diamonds} is the turn and both players check again, the river is the {2-Clubs} and Goodwin bets 200,000. Phillips quickly folds.

Phillips Continues To Hold The Edge

Marc Goodwin limps in and Phillips checks.

Both check the {6-Hearts} {A-Diamonds} {Q-Spades} flop before Phillips leads for 125,000 on the {3-Clubs} turn which is enough.
