Event #40: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Jarvis Wins Huge Race, Doubles

Matt Jarvis collecting chips after surviving a big all-in to retake the lead against Justin Filtz

Matt Jarvis had the button, and raised to 125,000. Justin Filtz tanked before three-betting to 550,000, Jarvis moved all in for 4.07 million, and Filtz called.

Jarvis: {a-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Filtz: {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}

Both rails were shouting, and the noise became deafening as the flop fell {8-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{j-Spades}. It didn't pair Jarvis, but the Canadian added extra outs with a double gutterball. The turn did not give him a straight, but the {10-Diamonds} paired Jarvis, and his rail exploded.


The river was not a deuce, but the {3-Clubs} was the brick they were looking for. Jarvis went for a short victory lap as the floor counted the chips, and after a few minutes the stacks looked like this:
