Event #4: €3,200 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Watson Wins Monster Pot, Takes Chip Lead

[user169806] • Nivå 3: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

We just reported that Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier was getting no action, now he has been getting too much.

Michael Watson opened to 12,000 from under the gun and his only customer was ElkY to his direct left. The flop came down {9-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Watson made a continuation bet of 20,000 and was instantly called by the Triple Crown winner.

The turn saw another ace make an appearance, the {A-Spades} and Watson bet 50,000 and again ElkY snap-called. The {4-Hearts} on the river was greeted with a check from Watson, a bet of 88,000 from ElkY and an all-in bet of 264,000 from Watson.

ElkY paused for a few moments before announcing, "I call."

ElkY{A-Hearts}{K-Spades}
Watson{3-Clubs}{3-Spades}

Watson scopps the massive 685,000 pot is is certainly our new chip leader, whilst ElkY drops to 120,000.
