King on the River Puts Mike Over a Million

Mike Puno

Pre-flop, Mike Puno raised to 40,000 from the small blind and big blind Bryan Huang decided to make it to a total of 100,000. Mike made the call and the flop was dealt:

Flop: {9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

On the flop, Mike led out for 100,000 and Bryan made the call.

It was the same story on the turn of {10-Diamonds}, as Mike fired out a bet of 135,000 and Bryan again made the call.

When the river brought the {k-Diamonds}, Mike stepped on the brakes a bit, putting out a small bet of 100,000. Bryan made the quick call but was resigned to mucking his hand after Mike showed {a-}{k-} for the rivered top pair.

Mike is now at about 1.4 million in chips after winning the big pot between the two blinds.
