Sweeney Makes the Hero Call

GeoffFisk • Level 33: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

Christopher Laieta opened to 500,000 from the button, Dan Sweeney three-bet to 1,500,000 from the small blind, and Laieta called.

Sweeney continuation bet for 1,100,000 on the {3-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} flop, and Laieta called.

Sweeney bet 3,300,000 on the {2-Spades} turn, and Laieta called.

Sweeney checked the {q-Clubs} river, Laieta bet 3,900,000, and Sweeney called. Laieta turned over {k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, for king-high, and saw that he was defeated by Sweeney's {a-Spades}{k-Spades} for ace high.

Laieta and Sweeney have been the two biggest stacks at the final table for the last several levels, and the two continue to play big pots against each other. With this pot, however, Sweeney has taken a commanding chip lead.
