Papola Takes Monster Lead

Papola can taste his first bracelet.

Men Nguyen completed from the small blind and Jeffrey Papola raised 125,000 more from the big. Nguyen called.

Both players checked the {6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop, and the turn brought the {8-Clubs}.

Nguyen checked, Papola bet 200,000 and Nguyen check-raised to 500,000. Papola quickly called.

The river was the {7-Clubs} and Papola bet 1,100,000. Nguyen went in the tank for over five minutes before finally grabbed two stacks of green T25,000 chips and pushing them forward making the call.

Papola opened {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for the nut-flush and Nguyen upsettingly showed {q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for trips.

After winning the monster pot, Papola has close to 5,000,000 chips and Nguyen is down to 1,700,000.
