The Tides Are Changing

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
Laurence Essa no longer in the lead

Christopher Gordon has been playing hyperactive since play resumed and first gave up a three-bet pot against Jesus Gracia. He then four-bet shoved for 2.8 million after raising 160,000 and facing the three-bet of Laurence Essa to 450,000. Essa tank-folded.

One hand later, Gordon called a 200,000-raise of Essa to see the flop of {4-Spades} {9-Diamonds} {5-Spades}. A continuation bet of Essa for 250,000 was check-called by Gordon and the {2-Diamonds} turn would see the very fast check-raise all in of Gordon. Essa had fired a second barrel worth 500,000 and eventually called off.

"For #### sake," Essa said when spotting the {2-Hearts} {2-Clubs} of his opponent before slowly turning over his own {Q-Hearts} {Q-Clubs}. The {A-Clubs} river ended the hand and suddenly pushed Essa towards the bottom of the counts.
