Boivin and Polk Off to Early Leads

ajlamers • Level 1: 200-300, 0 ante

There are a couple of marquee matchups over on Table 418 with Doug Polk making his return to the felt for the first time in what seems to be forever. Polk is facing off against 4x bracelet winner Joe Cada while Chance Kornuth and Thomas Boivin are duking it out on the opposite side of the table.

Boivin raised to 700 on the button and Kornuth called to see a flop of {q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Kornuth check-called a bet of 500 from Boivin and the {q-Clubs} hit the turn. Kornuth led out for 700 this time and Boivin called.

The river brought the {a-Hearts} which shut down Kornuth as he tapped the table this time. Boivin made a large bet of 4,000 and Kornuth tossed his cards to the muck.
