Owen's Crushing Play Opens Up Big Lead

zedmaster84 • Level 40: 4,000,000-8,000,000, 8,000,000 ante

In a three-bet pot to the {4-Spades}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop, Adam Owen bet 35 million with the {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} and Pascal Lefrancois called with {Q-Spades}{8-Spades}. The {a-Diamonds} fell on the turn and Owen checked, Lefrancois checked behind and the {K-Hearts} river completed the board.

Owen checked and Lefrancois bet 150 million before Owen check-raised all in. Suddenly Owen jumped into a 2-1 chip lead without showing down a hand.

Heads Up Play Starts Nicely for Owen

zedmaster84 • Level 40: 4,000,000-8,000,000, 8,000,000 ante

Adam Owen raised to 25 million with the {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and Pascal Lefrancois called with {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}, the {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flop was checked by Lefrancois and he folded bottom pair to a continuation bet of 28 million.

Lefrancois raised to 18 million with the {Q-Spades}{8-Hearts} and Owen defended the {6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. On the {J-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs} flop, both players checked and the {2-Diamonds} turn saw Owen bet 20 million and Lefrancois called. The {5-Diamonds} river improved Owen to a straight and he checked, Lefrancois bet 40 million and was check-raised to 170 million. That forced a fold from the Canadian and Owen closed the gap somewhat.

Chidwick Gets Very Short; Doubles Through Nitsche

zedmaster84 • Level 39: 3,500,000-7,000,000, 7,000,000 ante

Stephen Chidwick defended his big blind against the button raise of Pascal Lefrancois for 15 million with the {A-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and flopped bottom pair, while Lefrancois had top pair on {K-Hearts}{6-Spades} with the {K-Hearts}{6-Spades}.

Chidwick checked and called a bet of 10 million, while the duo checked through the {8-Diamonds} turn. On the {8-Spades} river, a check by the Brit resulted in a bet of 30 million by Lefrancois and he picked up the call he was looking for.

Soon after Chidwick shoved from the small blind for 56 million and Nitsche called from the big blind.

Stephen Chidwick: {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Dominik Nitsche: {8-Spades}{7-Spades}

The board came {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades}{7-Hearts}{A-Clubs} and Chidwick sent Nitsche to the bottom of the counts.
