Play Slows a Bit; Routos Chipping Up


Play has slowed down a bit, with players opting to play a more "small ball" style instead of risking very large sums of their stacks.

In a recent hand, James Routos opened to 25,000 from the button and was 3-bet to 53,000 from Nicolas Vaca-Rondon from the small blind. Chiab Saechao folded the big and Routos flatted to see a flop.

Flop: {7-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts}

Vaca-Rondon checked and Routos, undeterred by Vaca-Rondon's 3-bet, fired 75,000 into the top. Vaca-Rondon quickly folded.
