Middleton Seeks the Gold

Level 6 : 250-500, 50 ante

Action folded to Benjamin Gold, who began the Day 2a field fourth in chips, and he raised to 1,400 from the button. Tom Middleton, who won the European Poker Tour Barcelona Main Event last year, defended from the big blind and the two saw a flop of {4-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{8-Clubs}.

Middleton checked, Gold bet 1,700, and the man known as "Middy" woke up with a check-raise to 5,500. It did the trick as Gold quickly released his hand.
