Boyaciyan Closes the Gap

From the button, David Boyaciyan raised to 260,000, and Martin Finger three-bet to 625,000 total. The call came, and off they went to the flop.

It came {6-Spades} {2-Clubs} {5-Spades}, and thats how much Finger bet -- 625,000. Boyaciyan didn't waste more than a few seconds deciding to make the call. He was starting to get short on chips by that point, and he was faced with another bet of 1.1 million on the {2-Spades} turn. Boyaciyan cut down his chips -- he had less than 4 million left in front of him, and he eventually announced that he was all in.

With a frown, Finger quickly surrendered, and Boyaciyan has clawed his way back to within one double-up of taking the lead.
