Thompson Vila Builds Stack

zedmaster84 • Level 7: 300-600, 100 ante

After a raise by Steven Thompson Vila in middle position, David Sierra Merino three-bet to 4,500 from one seat over in the hijack. The action folded back to the Costa Rican, who called and checked the flop of {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Merino continued for 4,300 and received the call.

Both players eventually slowed down on the {7-Hearts} turn and {6-Hearts} river, checking both streets. Thompson Vila turned over the {A-Spades}{9-Spades} for a pair of aces and his opponent mucked. Merino remains among the biggest stacks late on Day 1a though, while Thompson Vila is well above average.
