Event #29: $2,500 10-Game Mix / Six Handed

Powell Scores a Triple

• Level 15
Brian Powell

2-7 No-Limit

Brian Powell had been near the top of the chip counts at one stage, but after taking several hits, he's just managed to triple up through Steve Sung and John D'Agostino.

Sung raised from under the gun and D'Agostino reraised from UTG +1 before the action folded around to Powell who four-bet it from the big blind. Sung called, but D'Agostino capped the action. Powell and Sung both called and they each took one card in the first draw while D'Agostino opted for two.

Powell bet and both Sung and D'Agostino called, then on the second draw, Sung stood pat while Powell and D'Agostino each swapped one card. Powell checked, Sung bet and D'Agostino called, but Powell check-raised all-in for another 500.

Both Sung and D'Agostino called, and while Powell and D'Agostino drew one more card each, Sung stood pat again and checked his option to D'Agostino, who also checked. Powell quickly showed down {8-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-} and that was plenty good to triple up.

Sung is down to 71,500, but D'Agostino is sitting pretty with 115,500 in chips.
