Vieira Leads After Taking Half of Selbst's Chips

[user127999] • Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Joao Vieira

Joao Vieira limped the small blind, but when Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst raised the big to 55,000, he three-bet, making it 144,000.

Selbst called and the flop came out {10-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}. Vieira led for 133,000 and Selbst flatted. The turn brought the {4-Clubs} and Vieira led again, making it 237,000. Selbst called again, but when Vieira jammed the {10-Clubs} river, putting Selbst to a decision for her last 500,000, she folded.

With that pot, Vieira has moved into the chip lead and sits just under the two million chip mark.
