DeWitt Sits With Big Stack


We reported a hand earlier that saw Jason DeWitt making a gutsy river call versus Steven Buckner to move his stack up over 100,000. DeWitt continued to accumulated steadily from there, and as the last level of the night nears its end he has been flirting with the 400,000-chip mark.

Just now DeWitt was engaged in another hand versus three opponents, one that began with a hijack raise to 2,700 called by both the cutoff and button, with DeWitt coming along from the big blind. The flop came {6-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} and it checked around to the button who fired 6,500, and only DeWitt stuck around.

The turn brought the {5-Diamonds}, and this time DeWitt led with a bet of 15,500. But when his opponent promptly slid out a stack of chips to raise, DeWitt let his hand go.

Despite taking that small hit, DeWitt is still sitting with more than 380,000, which puts him among the leaders as the day nears its end.
