Lightbourne Reaps Reward at Smith Bluff

[user80015] • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Dan Smith opened to 200,000 from under the gun and Iaron Lightbourne called from the hijack to see a {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop fall.

Smith continued for 250,000 and Lightbourne made the call before both players checked the {3-Hearts} on the turn.

The river landed the {Q-Diamonds} and Smith bet 650,000 which Lightbourne instantly called.

Smith tabled his {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} for king-high, but it would be Lightbourne's {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} that would see him river a pair (although he was already ahead) to scoop the pot and climb to 5.6 million as Smith slipped to 8.5 million in chips.
