Try Putting Vinson On This Hand

Ben Vinson has passed the 300k mark after piling pressure on an opponent on a wet board, and actually backing into a hand he needed as a back up.

Szabolcs Mayer raised from early position and Vinson defended his big blind to see a {9-Spades}{a-Spades}{3-Spades} flop. Mayer continued for 5,000 and called when Vinson check-raised to 14,200.

Vinson didn't slow down on the {5-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} turn and river and fired for 22,000 and 36,000. Mayer called fairly quickly on the turn but took a lot longer to call on the river.

He was shocked when Vinson tabled {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for a running inside straight. Vinson stacked his chips as his Hungarian opponent sat shaking his head.
