Stranak Doubles Into the Lead

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Samuel Stranak three-bet to 990,000 with the {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{3-Spades} and Alan Sabo called with the {q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. The {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop was checked by Stranak and Sabo elected to check it back.

The {2-Clubs} fell on the turn and Stranak now bet 800,000 for Sabo to call. As they headed to the {5-Spades} river, the pot had grown to 3,700,000 and Stranak checked once more. Sabo then bet the full pot and Stranak was sent into the tank for the 2,100,000 he had behind.

A long tank followed and Stranak then called as Sabo was caught with the fingers in the cookie jar. "Fuck, I only have queen-high," he joked in Slovakian and Stranak celebrated to double into the lead.
