Paqué Claims Chip Lead Back

poolshir • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Kevin Paqué

Kevin Paqué raised to 160,000 from the button and Steve O'Dwyer defended his big blind.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Spades}, O'Dwyer check-called the 300,000 continuation-bet of Paqué.

The turn brought them the {q-Clubs} and O'Dwyer checked. Paqué tanked for a while and then decided to lead out for 675,000. O'Dwyer took his time too and then made the call.

The river completed the board with the {8-Hearts}. O'Dwyer checked for the last time. Paqué stared at the board, tanked for a bit longer while O'Dwyer stared him down. In the end, Paqué glanced down at his stack before betting 1,075,000. O'Dwyer looked pained, confirmed the bet, rubbed his eyes, contemplated his options, sat back, looked over at Paqué, and then dived deep into the tank. In the end, O'Dwyer called. Paque tabled {q-Hearts}{10-Spades} for the turned pair of queens and that was enough for O'Dwyer to muck his hand.
