McAllister Takes the Lead

[user68268] • Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #9: Mike Watson made it 200,000 to go from under the gun with the {Q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. Vladimir Troyanovskiy reraised from the cutoff position with the {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} to 525,000. Play folded back to Watson, he gave it up, and Troyanovskiy won the hand.

Hand #10: On the button, Phillip McAllister raised to 225,000 with the {J-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. Mike Watson called from the big blind with the {J-Clubs}{5-Spades}.

The flop came down {J-Spades}{8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, and Watson check-called a bet of 190,000 from McAllister.

The turn was the {7-Clubs}, and Watson checked. McAllister bet 380,000, and Watson called.

The river was the {5-Hearts}, and Watson checked. McAllister fired 730,000, and Watson quickly called to see the bad news.

With that pot, McAllister moved into the chip lead.
