Armstrong Takes Strong Lead

Posted 2012-06-13 GMT-6 by

Jamie Armstrong limped in from the button recently, and found Michael Gathy giving a friendly check. Both players saw a {3-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{4-Spades} flop, and the real action began. Gathy checked, and Armstrong bet 125,000. Gathy then raised to 285,000, and Armstrong three-bet to 625,000. Gathy made the call and we were off to the turn.

A {3-Clubs} landed on fourth street and the two players knuckled the table for checks. A {a-Hearts} on the river saw a 555,000 bet from Gathy. Armstrong counterd by moving all in. After a few moments of contemplation Gathy threw it away and Armstrong took down the massive pot.
