Vic Takes Control

Vic Catalan

Vic Catalan has taken control of the table by winning the last four hands.

On the first hand, he bet 250,000 and got a caller in Johnny Tan. Both players checked down the {a-Spades} turn and {4-Spades} river and the cards were tabled:

Vic: {j-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Johnny: {j-Clubs}{q-Spades}

Johnny had the better hand on the flop but the river was able to make Vic a two-pair and award him the pot.

On the next three hands, Vic made pre-flop raises of increasing amounts. He first raised 150,000 on a hand and everybody folded.

Next hand, he raised 250,000 with the same result.

One hand after that, he made it 450,000 from under the gun and everybody got out of the way. This time, he showed his cards, flipping over pocket jacks.

Vic now has more than 3.2 million in chips.
