Sexton Takes a Big Bite

• Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante
Heads Up: Chris Viox & Mike Sexton

Chris Viox showed the {3-Diamonds} for the bring-in, and he called the completion from Mike Sexton and the {A-Diamonds}.

Viox: (x-x) / {3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} / (x)
Sexton: (x-x) / {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} / (x)

Sexton bet his lead on fourth street with two diamonds showing, but he checked on fifth. Viox checked it back, and Sexton checked again on sixth. Viox took his cue to bet, and Sexton called. On seventh, Sexton check-called one last bullet, making sure for a just a couple moments before he plunked most of his chips into the pot.

Viox could only reveal {2-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{10-Spades} for a pair of threes, and Sexton flipped over {7-Spades}{6-Spades}{K-Spades} for the winning pair of sevens. He may have been a bit surprised to scoop that one up, but it's done his stack well, boosting him to 930,000 and back into the fight once again. He's still down about 2:1 in chips, though.
