With nearly every table full in Level 3 (100/200 blinds), there are a lot of hands going on simultaneously. The glint of the top-denomination yellow 5k chips are what draws the eye, so here are a couple of rivers that got chips flowing:
A huge full-stack-ish jam (c.23,000) on the river from Alan Hayter on a board of 7c 7d Jd Kh Jc into a pot of a few thousand got a fold from opponent Stuart Lord. Hayter showed K-7 and said that he was hoping his opponent held a jack. “Then he scoops,” pointed out his tablemate. “I just bombed out with aces over there,” the winner admitted, in the process admitting to the brain-scramble that can sometimes accompany such swift early exits/re-entries…
Anthony Cartwright bet out 6,550 (25k behind) into a pot of 10,000 on the river with a board of Qc Js 6c Kh…Qc. Samuel Gilbert moved all-in for 15,325 (another outing for the Red Triangle of Risk) and Cartwright eventually folded, being shown a triumphant Jc 9c.
Another big river jam from an as yet un-ID-carded player (19k on the river of a 2d 3h 4c Kh 3c), which put Duane Sluis to the test for most of his stack. He made the call, lost to pocket fours, and dropped to 5,000.
