Huey Wins Big Pot; Closes in on Chip Lead

Mateusz_Pater • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Mathew Huey

The action started with the player in middle position opening to 4,300, before Mathew Huey raised it up to 13,000 from the hijack. Justin Liberto then paused for a moment, before bumping it up to 27,700. The original better got out of the way, before Huey quickly raised it up once more to 50,000. Liberto tanked for a minute, before making the call.

The flop came down {k-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Liberto checked. Huey instantly reached for his chips, and slid out another 50,000. He was called, as the {7-Spades} fell on the turn. Liberto quickly checked, and Huey paused for a second, before moving all in for over 300,000.
The bet had Liberto covered, who then agonised over his decision. He sat forward in his seat, shaking his head, and riffling his chips rather vigorously. Almost two minutes went by before he made the call, as both players tabled their cards.

Huey: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}
Liberto: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}

Liberto had run into an over pair, and needed a miracle on the river to stay alive. Unfortunately, the {6-Spades} completed the board, as Liberto quickly exited the Amazon Room, leaving Huey to stack up his new found wealth.
