Makarov Ascends to the Chip Lead

Alexey Makarov


From under the gun, Chris Klodnicki raised to 120,000 and Alexey Makarov called next to act in the cutoff.

The flop landed {2-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Spades} and Klodnicki checked to Makarov who bet 60,000. Klodnicki called, and then checked the {J-Spades} on the turn.

Makarov bet 120,000 and Klodnicki called as the river landed the {10-Spades}.

Klodnicki checked, Makarov bet 120,000, and Klodnicki check-raised to 240,000.

Makarov wasn't having any of that dessert, and he made it three bets to go and 360,000.

Klodnicki responded with a fold, and once Makarov scooped in and stacked the pot, he would now be perched on top of the leaderboard.
