James and the Giant Chip Stack

James Routos
James Routos

When we caught up to James Routos we found him facing an all-in bet from his opponent in the big blind preflop. Routos thought for a few moments and dishearteningly through out the call. Cards were tabled and the flop was spread.

Routos: {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Big Blind: {A-Spades}{3-Clubs}

A {k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop fell out of the deck giving Routos a leading pair of kings heading to the turn. With a {6-Clubs} planting on fourth street an ace would be the only thing to take this pot from Routos. A {q-Clubs} fell, and Routos added more to his continual growing mountain of chips.
