Polychronopoulos Pushes Ray Off the Pot

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Anthanasios Polychronopoulos (Seen Here on Day 2) Has Moved Into the Chip Lead Here on Day 3

After calling a previous raise of 32,000, Athanasios Polychronopoulos saw Brian Ray slide a stack of 100,000 forward for a three-bet out of the small blind.

The original raiser folded after about a minute of thought, and Polychronopoulos elected to call the bet, seeing a flop of {q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{5-Spades} arrive on board.

Ray continued with his aggressive line, firing a bet of 110,000 at the dangerous pro, but Polychronopoulos made the call once again, bringing the {Q-Hearts} to the table.

The presence of a pair on board, and perhaps the death stare administered by Polychronopoulos, convinced Ray to slow down, and he tapped the table. This opening was all Polychronopoulos needed to take the large pot, and his 150,000 value bet forced Ray to fold.
