Meese Wins The Biggest Pot So Far

MartyDerby • Level 17: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

There was a raise and three callers preflop, including Ryan Meese and Joao Batista Cunha Jr.

After the raiser checked the {9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} flop, Meese led for 60,000. One player folded before Cunha min-raised to 60,000. Only Meese called, and he checked the {k-Diamonds} turn. Cuhna shoved for about 135,000 and Meese called all in for his last 126,500 with the nuts.

His {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} had Cuhna and his {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} drawing dead, and after a meaningless {8-Hearts} river, two rather big stacks were combined into one and pushed to Meese. Cuhna was left with 10,000 in chips, but they went in and he went out on the very next hand.

In the meantime, Meese is the runaway chip leader with just 16 players remaining on two tables now.
