Big Call Gives Smyth Chiplead


Jonathan Alley has moved all-in on the river, his 5 milly stack far surpassing the 1.7775m stack of Eric Smyth.

The board is Kc Kc Kc Kc Kc and Smyth turns in his chair to face right at Alley. What he can't see is Alley's left foot tapping at about 175MPH, mostly because his own left foot is tapping at about 150MPH.

Smyth asks if Alley will show, they talk a bit more ... and Smyth calls off his stack.

Alley grimaces, and turns over Kc Kc , aka air.

Smyth shows ... Kc Kc .. this pair good and a big swing in the chiplead.

Alley slips to 3,500,000
Smyth moves to 6,000,000

Kevin Sears is eliminated in 4th as I am writing this up, cashing for $9,500 and Alley chipping up with that KO.

The chips don't last long as Alley calls the all-in of Makara Nuon and he's way ahead with his A5 on a 3-4-6 board, Nuon holding KT ... turn King and Nuon is to 3.5 milly, Alley to 4 milly and Smyth at 6.5 milly
