Big Preflop Pot Goes to Colin Moffatt, Vaults Him Near The Top

Colin Moffatt

Noel Eicher opened with a raise to 65,000 from early position. Next to act was Colin Moffatt who reraised, making it 190,000 to play. Just a few seats over in middle position was David Patterson. He put in a four bet, making it 450,000 to go. Paul Senat was next to act and he dropped into the tank. Senat tanked for several minutes before he finally let go of his hand.

Eicher quickly released and that put Moffatt into the tank. He thought for several minutes. At multiple points, he grabbed his stack of T$100,000 chips and put his hand on them, looked as if he might push them forward, shook his head, then went back to thinking.

Finally, after about three minutes, Moffatt did put his hand on the T$100,000 chips and pushed forward a stack of more than 2 million, enough to put Patterson all in. Patterson then shook his head, double-checked his cards, and pitched them into the muck, and that allowed Moffatt to take down the big pot with no showdown.

Along with this pot, Moffat has chipped up nicely throughout the day, making him one of the top stacks in the room.
