Two Pots For Bazeley

chingster23 • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Jacob Bazeley raised to 100,000 and Brent Hanks made the call. The pair shared a flop of {K-Spades} {7-Hearts} {6-Diamonds} which they both checked. Fourth street brought the {Q-Hearts} out to play and Bazeley won the pot with a 105,000 bet.

Then Hanks raised to 100,000 and Bazeley called. The action checked through to the river on a board of {A-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} {8-Spades} {J-Spades} {2-Clubs} when Bazeley bet 105,000 and Hanks called. Bazeley turned over {J-} {7-} for a pair of jacks and it was good enough to win the pot.

Brent Hanks raised to 100,000 on the button, Andrew Badecker three-bet to 250,000 in the small blind, Brent Hank four-bet to 540,000 and the pressure was right back on Badecker. How was his state of mind after that huge hand with Bazeley?

"I am all-in," said Badecker.

Hanks called and when Badecker saw the hand of his opponent his face stared up at the heavens.

Happy_Freaked

Andrew Badecker raised to 85,000 from the button and Jacob Bazeley three-bet from the small blind to 200,000. Brent Hanks folded his big blind and Badecker made the call.

The flop came down {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}{10-Clubs} and Bazeley bet 250,000. Badecker made the call and got us to the turn. The turn was the {8-Hearts} and Bazeley continued betting, he threw out 400,000. Badecker made the call once more and the river brought out the {10-Diamonds}. The pot was already massive and to make things even more exciting Bazeley moved all in. Badecker made the call for a total of 1,030,000 and got shown {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}. Bazeley had the best possible full house and Badecker showed his {Q-}{10-}. Also a full house for Badecker who is no longer the chip leader.

Board: {J-Clubs} {9-Hearts} {4-Clubs} {Q-Spades} {8-Hearts}

Selbst is out and Badecker moves into the chip lead with three players remaining.
