Stevenson Scoops Massive Pot Against Sanders

Level 32 : 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Michael Sanders opened to 200,000 from the button. Ryan Stevenson called from the small blind and the big blind folded.

The dealer fanned {6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{7-Clubs} and Stevenson check-called 285,000 to see a turn.

Fourth street brought the {9-Hearts} and the action went check-check. The board paired nines when the {9-Clubs} hit fifth street and Stevenson led for 590,000. Sanders stood up from the table, looked down at the board, and made it 1.4 million to go.

Stevenson tanked for well over ninety seconds before finally announcing a call. He tabled {k-Diamonds}{9-Spades} for trip nines. Sanders shook his head in disgust and rolled up {Q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} for trip nines with a worse kicker. By scooping this pot, Stevenson has now retaken the chip lead with about 4.75 million while Sanders has fallen to roughly 1.7 million.
