Vlichez Applies Pressure With The Big Stack

HillKerby • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Andrew Rodgers raised to 200,000 on the button and was called by Jesse Vilchez, defending his big blind. The flop came {9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} and Vilchez checked. Rodgers continuation-bet 180,000 and Vilchez thought for close to a minute before putting in a check-raise to 545,000.

Rodgers then went into the tank, thinking for about two minutes. Eventually, he opted not to commit any further chips and instead sent his cards to the muck. With the pot, Vilchez now finds himself over 6.5 million with nine players still remaining.
