Callum Pooles opened to 400,000 from the highjack. Bartas Samoska called from the button and both blinds folded, so heads-up to the flop.
A flop of came. Both players checked.
The turn was an action inducing . Pooles bet out 500,000. Samoska thought for a moment then raised all-in. Pooles quickly called.
Pooles had a pair of queens and Samoska had a pair of jacks but the river gave Samoska trips and he became our new chip leader.
The players' stacks are now much more balanced.
