Jeff "mavsusc" Platt Rivers a Set and Takes the Chip Lead

BrandonTemple • Level 35: 30,000-60,000, 7,500 ante

Jeff "mavsusc" Platt raised to 122,500 from middle position, and was called by Ian "APokerJoker2" Steinman in the cutoff and James "jerzrep" Nadolski in the big blind.

Nadolski checked the {3-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Spades} flop to Platt, who continued for 155,200. Only Steinman called.

The {2-Hearts} fell on the turn, and Platt checked. Steinman bet 282,500 and Platt called.

Platt led out for 225,500 on the {7-Clubs} river, and Steinman raised to 677,500. Platt called, and Steinman tabled {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}. Platt drilled the river with his {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, however, and Platt's set of sevens won the pot and propelled him to the chip lead.
