Event #5: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Foutty Surges to 209,000

With no time to spare, Stephen Foutty has rocketed to a commanding chip lead. He had been facing a preflop raise of 2,300 when he three-bet to 6,400. Foutty's opponent shoved all in for 90,000 and Foutty took a few minutes to think, saying "I am 99% sure I have you beat here." Fouty did indeed make the call.

Foutty: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}

The board came down {3-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} and Foutty is now sitting on 209,000 chips. Not too bad.
