Sexton Building a Big Stack

Mike Sexton has just taken down a very large pot and we were there to catch all the action from the {8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} flop. It was Sexton against two opponents, with Sexton on the button. The first player to act was in the small blind position and opted to check. The player on his direct left, the big blind position, then bet 675. Sexton called and so too did the other player and the dealer flipped over another card.

Turn: {j-Hearts}

The play was checked to Sexton and he bet 3,400. Both his opponents called and another card was dealt on the felt.

River: {k-Clubs}

The small blind player checked here and the player on his left bet 7,125. Sexton made the call and so too did the small blind player. At this point the aggressor threw his cards into the muck, while Sexton and the small blind would turn their cards over.

Sexton: {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Small Blind: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Sexton's straight was good enough to rake in the big pot, while his opponent didn't look too excited to see his set of ten go into the muck.
