Richardson Gets Tricky With Aces, Takes the Chip Lead

HillKerby • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Paul Richardson

Arish Nat raised to 200,000 from the button and Paul Richardson called from the small blind. Paul Chai was in the big blind and defended, taking action three ways to the streets.

The flop came {j-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and action checked to Nat, who made a continuation-bet of 225,000. Richardson called and Chai quickly folded. Both remaining players checked the turn {10-Spades}.

The river fell {4-Clubs} and Richardson fired out a bet of 500,000. Nat put out chips to call.

Richardson tabled {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts} for aces up. Nat was about to table his hand until he saw Richardson's bullets, prompting him to send the cards onto the felt face down instead as the pot was sent Richardson's way. WIth the pot, he has seemingly pulled ahead of Nat slightly and now finds himself as chip leader with four still remaining.
