Watson Climbs Up The Ladder

[user20283] • Level 3: 200-400, 50 ante

Mike Watson was one of the shorter stacks after just a few orbits but he just managed to win another big pot. Watson is now among the bigger stacks and he turned things around nicely in a short period of time.

Watson raised under the gun to 1,000 and Jesse Sylvia made the call from the cutoff. The flop brought out {6-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Watson decided to check. Sylvia fired out 1,400 and Watson called.

On the turn the {10-Hearts} hit and Watson check-called 3,600. The river brought the {5-Spades} and this time Watson check-called 10,800. Sylvia showed {A-}{J-} and mucked when Watsons showed his {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}.
