Winter is Coming... and He's Bringing A Lot of Chips With Him

Chad_Holloway • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Sean Winter raised to 130,000 from the cutoff, Nick Maimone called from the small blind, and the both players checked the {5-Hearts}{a-Spades}{q-Diamonds} flop. After the dealer burned and turned the {6-Diamonds}, Maimone checked, Winter bet 155,000, and Maimone check-raised to 400,000.

Winter took his time before making the call and the {7-Hearts} completed the board on the river. Maimone led out for 520,000, and Winter responded by moving all in for 580,000 more. Maimone didn't seem thrilled, but he called with the {6-Clubs}{6-Spades} for a turned set. He didn't seem surprised to see Winter roll over a better hand, but he didn't seem to expect the {8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for the rivered gutshot.

Sean Winter us 3,150,000 1,485,000
Nick Maimone us 3,000,000 -1,600,000
