From Outhouse to Penthouse, Raichura Takes Chip Lead

thehazyone • Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Calen McNeil opened the action for a raise. Kal Raichura three-bet, Jim Bucci called, Nick Kost folded the big blind, and McNeil called. The flop came {K-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and it was checked to Raichura who bet. He was called by both players. The turn was the {6-Spades} and it was checked around. The river was the {10-Diamonds} and Bucci led out with a bet inducing a fold from McNeil. Raichura made the call and would take down the pot when his {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for the nut flush was better than Bucci's {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for trip 6's. With that pot, Raichura moved into the chip lead and Bucci trails the pack as the short stack.

Raichura would take another 300,000+ from McNeil a few hands later when he made a full house against McNeil's aces up to add to his chip lead and threaten McNeil's shot at winning back-to-back bracelets in this event.
