Teasdale Busts Moriarty in Huge Pot

Adam Teasdale has just taken the chip lead in dramatic fashion.

He opened the action with a raise to 25,000 from the hijack and was called by the player on the button. Ryan Moriarty three-bet to 61,000 from the small blind, both players called, and the flop came down {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{10-Spades}.

Moriarty bet 65,000, but Teasdale popped it to 140,000. The player on the button folded, putting the action back on Moriarty who tanked for about 45 seconds before re-raising all in for about 505,000.

Teasdale called and tabled {A-Spades}{J-Spades}, trailing (but with many outs against) the {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} of Moriarty.

The {8-Diamonds} fell on the turn to keep Moriarty ahead, but it gave Teasdale a few extra outs. On cue, the {9-Diamonds} landed on the river to give Teasdale a queen-high straight to score the elimination.
