Tapscott Makes Dent in Griffins's Chip Lead


It seemed like Gavin Griffin couldn't lose but Herbert Tapscott just made a little dent in the Triple Crown winner's chip lead. Tapscott raised to 120,000 from the button and Griffin defended his big blind. The flop brought {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Griffin lead out for 60,000 after which Tapscott raised to 120,000. Griffin called and the turn was the {K-Spades}. Griffin check-called 120,000 and the river was the {7-Spades}. Griffin check-called another 120,000 and mucked when Tapscott showed {A-Spades}{8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for the nut flush.
