Newton Keeps Climbing

dsalituro • Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 180,000 ante
Thomas Newton

Blind versus blind, Roland Israelashvili raised to 285,000 and Thomas Newton called. Israelashvili took one, while Newton drew two.

Israelashvili checked after the draw and Newton put out a bet of 700,000. Israelashvili spent several minutes in the tank, placing two blue 100,000 chips on top of a tower of 25,000 chips.

He eventually slid that stack forward. "Eight-seven," Newton announced, turning over {8-}{7-}{6-}{5-}{2-}.

"Nice," Israelashvili said before mucking.
