DeWitt Wins Another Marathon Hand

Jason DeWitt
Jason DeWitt

Jason DeWitt tried the button-limp once again and Sam Trickett checked his option in the big blind.

They took a flop of {4-Spades}{6-Spades}{Q-Hearts} and Trickett checked to DeWitt who bet 120,000. Trickett made the call.

The turn was the {3-Clubs} and Trickett led out for 350,000 before DeWitt raised it up to 1.1 million. Trickett made the call as complete hush fell over the final table area.

The fans were anxiously awaiting the {6-Hearts} river card where Trickett checked to DeWitt who took his time before betting a cool two million. Trickett tanked, and understandably as this was already the biggest pot of the tournament.

Trickett eventually found a fold and DeWitt takes down a monster pot without showdown!

Every hand here is very tense and very drawn out at the moment with that one taking a good ten minutes!

DeWitt - 7.2 million
Trickett - 4.68 million

Trickett Check-Raises River


For something different, Jason DeWitt limped in from the button and Sam Trickett checked his option in the big blind.

The flop landed {5-Clubs}{A-Spades}{J-Hearts} and Trickett again led at the pot with a bet of 200,000. DeWitt made the call.

Both players checked the {9-Diamonds} and the {A-Diamonds} landed on the river. Trickett checked to DeWitt who made a small bet of 150,000 but Trickett responded with a river check-raise to 750,000. DeWitt thought for a good five minutes, but eventually let it go.

Small One For Trickett


Jason DeWitt raised to 285,000 from the button and Sam Trickett made the call. On the flop of {4-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{J-Clubs} Trickett led out with a bet of 325,000 which was enough to take it down as DeWitt tossed his cards into the muck.

Brits Finding Voice!


Sam Trickett opened to 280,000 before Jason DeWitt popped it to 870,000 to go. Trickett thought for a moment before declaring himself all in! DeWitt quickly let it go as the British invasion is finding voice!

It looks like Trickett might be close to grabbing the chip lead with that pot but we'll have the updated chip counts for you shortly.

Trickett Takes It On The River


Jason DeWitt opened to 240,000 and Sam Trickett made the call in the big blind. They took a flop of {5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and both players checked. The {9-Hearts} fell on the turn and Trickett led out for 325,000. After his usual pause for deliberation, DeWitt made the call.

The river was the {10-Diamonds} and Trickett fired 1.1 million into the middle and DeWitt insta-folded. The Brits are chanting and that only means one thing...their boy is raking in another pot!

DeWitt Flexes With Three-Bet


Sam Trickett raised to 250,000 before Jason DeWitt put in the first three-bet of this heads-up duel as he added another 500,000 to the bet. Trickett quickly folded and DeWitt rakes in another pot.

DeWitt Wins First Post-Flop Pot


In the first heads-up hand to see a flop, Jason DeWitt raised to 240,000 from the button and Sam Trickett made the call.

The flop arrived {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}{4-Spades} and Trickett checked to DeWitt who fired 275,000 to take it down.
