Monraton Wins Battle Of Big Stacks

tayke2 • Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

We saw that our new chip leader Rudy Blondeau had been moved, and when we found him, we saw that he was opposite another huge stack, [Removed:85]. Well it didn't take too long for these players to get involved in a huge hand.

We caught the action with about 23,000 in the middle, and a board reading {9-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. There were three players in the pot: the big blind, Blondeau, who was under the gun, and Monraton, who was in the cutoff. It was checked to Blondeau, who fired out 10,500. Monraton counted out a raise to 24,000, and toss it into the middle. Both the big blind and Blondeau came along, and the pot swelled up to over 100,000.

The turn changed nothing, bringing the {4-Hearts}, and it was checked to Monraton He kept his foot on the gas, firing out a big bet of 46,000. The big blind shook his head while folding, and after about 30 seconds of tanking, Blondeau released his hand too. After that pot, Monraton catapults to our chip lead, with 460,000.
