Ausmus Makes a Tough Call; Vaults Back Into the Lead

[user101598] • Level 21: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Jeremy Ausmus

Jeremy Ausmus min-raised on the button, Chris Johnson called, and the dealer fanned {8-Spades}{2-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Johnson check-raised to 55,000 after Ausmus tossed out a continuation bet, and the Octo-Niner made the call.

The turn was the {3-Hearts}, Johnson led out for 75,000, and Ausmus called. The {a-Clubs} completed the board, Johnson moved all in for effectively 364,500, and after 90 seconds or so in the tank, Ausmus called.

Johnson showed {q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for a pair of deuces, which Ausmus had beat with {j-Hearts}{5-Clubs} for a pair of fives. Ausmus pulled in the massive pot, and now sits with a near three-to-one chip lead.
