Jorgensen Trips into the Lead

MarcC • Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Theo Jorgensen was the victor in a three-way pot and that saw him break through the two million barrier.

He opened to 27,000 early position and was called by Mantas Visockis before Pasi Sormunen three-bet to 62,000 from the big blind. Both players called to the {9-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop where they called a 125,000 c-bet.

It was the Team PokerStars Pro who took up the betting reigns on the {9-Spades} turn; his 200,000 bet was called by both opponents. All three checked the {7-Clubs} river.

Sormunen said he had two pair but both his opponent's had trip nines. Jorgensen opened {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} beating out Visockis' {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}.
