Ashton's Trap Fails, But He Still Takes the Lead

Level 25
Matthew Ashton
Matthew Ashton

Pot-Limit Omaha

Hand #189: Matthew Ashton raised to 240,000 out of the small blind, Don Nguyen called out of the big blind, and the dealer fanned {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. Ashton led out for 270,000, Nguyen called, and the turn brought the {9-Clubs}. Ashton fired out another 720,000, Nguyen min-raised to 1.44 million, and Ashton called.

Both players knuckled when the {j-Diamonds} completed the board, and Ashton took down the pot with {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for the nut-flush.
