James Still on a Rollercoaster

ajlamers • Level 29: 350,000-700,000, 700,000 ante
Jason James

Jason James raised to 1,600,000 in the cutoff and Paul Fontan three-bet to 5,600,000 from the small blind. James called to see a flop of {j-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Fontan led out for 2,950,000 and James called. The turn was the {3-Spades} and Fontan shoved all in which got James to snap-fold.

In the next hand, James raised it up again. Upeshka De Silva put in a three-bet on his left and the action folded back to James. He four-bet shoved all in for 12,900,000 and De Silva made the call.

James: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
De Silva: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

It was a coin flip and James pulled away from his seat with little confidence that he was winning this one. However, the board ran out {9-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{k-Spades}{5-Clubs} to give James a straight and a full double up.
