Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer and Kahle "ROFLshove" Burns had been battling back and forth for the chip lead for the last hour, and the former just won a huge preflop cooler to see his stack soar to over 5 million, easily the chip lead as the day has just ended. Here's how it went down.
O'Dwyer raised to 77,000 to start, and Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis, who had just been crippled on the hand before, called all in for 34,700. Burns was next in the pot, and he three bet to 247,885. O'Dwyer reraised to 665,000, Burns shoved for 3.5 million, and O'Dwyer quickly called, making for a pot of 5.6 million.
Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis:
Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer:
Kahle "ROFLshove" Burns:
Burns likely hoped for a chop after the turn, but the river provided no such luck, and O'Dwyer scooped the pot to bag the overnight chip lead. Stay tuned for a full recap to be posted shortly.
