Lacay Wins a Monster Pot Off Tompkins

Ludovic Lacay

Jason Tompkins three-bet to 169,000 from the big blind before the flop and Ludovic Lacay called from the cut-off seat. The flop came {3-Clubs} {2-Hearts} {5-Clubs} and Tompkins fired another 148,000. Lacay made the call and both players saw the {10-Hearts} come on the turn.

Tompkins checked and so did Lacay. Dealer burned and turned the {Q-Diamonds} on the river. Tompkins lead for 244,000 and Lacay answered this with a raise, pushing in three big piles of T5,000 chips and one yellow pile of T25,000 chips for a total of 600,000.

It was a tough decision for Tompkins to make and he thought about it for a couple of minutes. Tompkins finally made the call, but it turned out to be a bad one as Lacay flipped {A-Hearts} {4-Hearts} for a straight. Tompkins folded and saw Lacay collect the massive pot of 1.5 million.
