Mike Watson

Mike Watson raised to 115,000 from early position and was called by Mikita Badziakouski in the big blind.

The flop came {10-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Watson continued for 200,000. Badziakouski check-called to see the {3-Diamonds} on the turn.

Badziakouski checked again and Watson bet another 500,000. Badziakouski paused for a moment before announcing he was all in, and Watson shrugged and called off his last 1,485,000.

Badziakouski showed {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for straight and flush draws, while Watson had {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} for top pair. The {10-Clubs} on the river was safe for Watson and he earned the double up.
