Peters Back in the Chip Lead

Jaxon • Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
David Peters

David Peters ended Day 3 with the chip lead and held onto it for a good part of Day 4. He began the day in third place but just increased his stack by more than 30 percent to reclaim his position as chip leader.

Peters raised to 105,000 from the cutoff. Sergei Petrushevskii called from the small blind, while Josip Vidovic, who is short on chips, got out of the way from the small blind.

Petrushevskii check-called a bet from Peters for 145,000 after the flop came {4-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Petrushevskii check-called a bet again, this time for 260,000 after {10-Spades} hit the turn.

The {4-Diamonds} completed the board on the river. Peters bet for 370,000 after his opponent checked. Petrushevskii thought for a minute before he called. Peters shipped the hand and got his chip count back close to 4 million and the chip lead after he turned over {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts} and Petrushevskii tossed his hand into the muck.
