HillKerby • Level 33: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

Brandon Lombardo completed on the button and Landon Tice chec ked his option preflop. Both players checked a flop of {8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades} to bring the turn {j-Clubs} on board, where Tice check-called a bet from Lombardo for 350,000.

The river came {3-Diamonds}. Tice checked and called another bet of 650,000 to take the hand to showdown.

Lombardo showed {j-Diamonds}{5-Spades} for a pair of jacks and Tice responded by sending his cards to the muck. With the pot, Lombardo has now taken the lead in the match.
