Event #12: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Yaginuma Wins A Massive Pot and Claims the Chip Lead

[user169806] • Level 10: 500-1,000, 0 ante

Jesse Yaginuma opened to 2,000 from the cutoff and then called when David Martirosyan in the small blind three-bet to 6,000. The flop came down {5-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}, the small blind bet and Yaginuma called.

The turn brought the {9-Clubs} into play and Martirosyan fired a second barrel, this one worth 11,500. Again, Yaginuma called. The river was the {A-Diamonds} and now Martirosyan checked. Yaginuma, instead of checking behind, moved all-in, creating a massive pot!

Martirosyan went into the tank for several minutes before letting his hand go.

Yaginuma mucked his hand so we may never know what he actually held. One thing is for sure, he is our current chip leader with 40-minutes left of the final level.
