"C0LD_W0RLD" Spikes River to Stay Alive and Take Lead

BrandonBloom

Blinds 25,000-50,000

Both players have had plenty of opportunities to take down this tournament. In one hand, the players got all-in on a {6-Spades}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop with Corey "Corgasm231" Paggeot at risk with {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} against the {3-Clubs}{6-Clubs} of "C0LD_W0RLD". The board ran out {q-Diamonds} {a-Spades} to keep Paggeot alive.

Some hands after that, Paggeot took a 3:1 chip lead when getting {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades} in preflop against {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} and holding on a board of {7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{10-Clubs} {2-Hearts} {j-Hearts}.

Paggeot then had a chance to win it on the next hand when getting {k-Spades}{9-Clubs} in preflop against {a-Spades}{2-Clubs} but "C0LD_W0RLD" held on a board of {k-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{q-Clubs} {a-Hearts} {10-Hearts}.

On this particular hand, Paggeot opened to 100,000 in the small blind and "C0LD_W0RLD" called. The flop was {k-Hearts}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs} and "C0LD_W0RLD" called a bet of 50,000. The {2-Diamonds} turn saw a lead of 188,000 from Paggeot before "C0LD_W0RLD" jammed for 1,088,432 and Paggeot called.

Corey "Corgasm231" Paggeot: {k-Clubs}{6-Hearts}
"C0LD_W0RLD": {k-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Paggeot was ahead and could win, and although a lot of rivers would chop the hand, only a five would give the entire pot to "C0LD_W0RLD". However, it was indeed the {5-Hearts} to complete the board and "C0LD_W0RLD" took the chip lead once again in this back-and-forth heads-up match.
