Monster Three-Way Pot for the Chip Lead

Chad_Holloway • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante
Matthew Blagg

We picked up the action on a flop of {7-Spades}{8-Spades}{j-Hearts} when Robert Fortuno checked from the small blind and Matthew Blagg bet 50,000 from the big. Marvin Imutan, the under-the-gun player, called and then Fortuno woke up with a check-raised to 100,000.

Blagg called and then Imutan popped it to 400,000. Fortuno then called before Blagg jammed all in for just over 700,000. Imutan rejammed for 1.2 million and Fortuno thought long and hard before folding the {j-Spades}{5-Spades} face up.

Matthew Blagg: {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Marvin Imutan: {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

"Pair the board," the Imutan called. Indeed, he was looking to fill up in order to overcome the flopped nuts of Blagg.

The {10-Clubs} turn put out some chop options, but the {a-Diamonds} river was a brick to send the monster pot, and the chip lead, over to Blagg.

Chip Counts
Matthew Blagg US 2,000,000 1,500,000
Robert Fortuno us 1,200,000 -400,000
Marvin Imutan US 500,000 183,000
