Table 3 Shifting Chips
Hand 1: Mike Esposito (East Hanover, NJ) (S-7) ships all in pre-flop with KK and Cody Custer (Dover, DE) (S-9) calls holding AK.
Board runs: J-8-K-4-Q.
Mike still had to sweat the river has Cody had the ace of spades and four spades were out there.
With that monster pot, Mike zoomed up to 700,000.
He was the tournament chip leader for about two minutes. Mike looked down at AQ, and decided not to raise pre-flop. This let Nicholas Palma (Bronx, NY) into the pot with 6-9.
Queen on the flop along with a straight draw for Palma. Palma got there on the turn and took down 130,000 off of Mike.
Nicholas Palma has 680,000 and Mike Esposito has 570,000.
