"Hubble116" Takes the Early Lead


The blinds were 150/300 when "Hubble116" opened to 600 and "Razz149" elected to push in a 1,200 three-bet. "Hubble116" called and "jdhester" stuck around as well to see the {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{j-Spades} flop.

"Razz149" led out for 2,130 and "Hubble116" was the only player to call. A {4-Spades} peeled off as the turn and "Razz149" fired once more, putting 4,260 into the middle. "Hubble116" shoved their 48,055 chip stack and "Razz149" called for less.

"Razz149" showed {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} for two pair but it was behind when "Hubble116" tabled {a-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}, giving them three aces. A {2-Hearts} river cemented the pot for "Hubble116" who eliminated "Razz149" in the process of doing so.
