Blumenthal Moves to Second in Chips

donpeters

Nicholas Blumenthal raised from the cutoff seat to 23,000. Markus Gonsalves reraised from the small blind to make it 58,000 to go. Blumenthal called when action got back to him.

The flop came down {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and Gonsalves fired 55,000. Blumenthal made the call to see the {8-Hearts} fall on the turn. Gonsalves checked now and Blumenthal bet 85,000. With 406,000 behind, Gonsalves made the call to see the river.

The river was the {9-Spades} and completed the board. Gonsalves had 321,000 left in his stack and checked to Blumenthal, who had the power of position. Blumenthal bet all in, having Gonsalves covered. Gonsalves tanked for a couple of minutes and then gave it up, allowing Blumenthal to scoop the pot and move to second in chips.
