Conan Takes Bigger Lead


Blinds: 800/1,600

Arthur Conan raised to 3,679 from the button with the {k-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Aleksejs Ponakovs defended his {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}.

The {8-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{j-Diamonds} came on the flop for both of them to hit a pair but for Ponakovs to hit the higher one. They both checked to the {7-Diamonds} on the turn for Conan to improve to trips. Ponakovs checked and Conan bet 5,519 to get called.

The river completed the board with the {6-Clubs}. Ponakovs checked for the final time. Conan barreled a bet of 13,797 over the line for Ponakovs to call and lose.
