Perrins Takes the Lead

Mateusz_Pater • Level 25: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

The action folded around to Matt Perrins in the small blind, who limped in, as Arthur Pro checked his option from the big blind. The flop came down {6-Spades}{9-Hearts}{j-Hearts}, as Perrins checked his option. Pro bet out 75,000 and was called, before the {q-Clubs} fell on the turn. Perrins checked over to Pro once more, who didn’t stop his aggression, quickly reaching for chips, and betting out 150,000. Perrins called, and then checked for the third time, when the {9-Diamonds} completed the board. Pro bet out 215,000, and was called, after a short tank from Perrins.

Pro mucked his hand, as Perrins tabled his {6-Hearts}{q-Hearts} for two-pair, which was enough to take down the pot.

“Nice catch on the turn,” said Pro, following the hand.
