Eastgate Gets Some Much Needed Chips


We arrived at the table to see that Peter Eastgate and Blair Rodman were involved in a three way pot. There was about 8,000 in the middle when we got there, and the dealer had just fanned out a flop of {6-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. Eastgate checked to Rodman, who fired out 4,500. Both Eastgate and their other opponent made the call, and the turn brought the {10-Hearts}. All three players checked, and the same occurred when the {7-Spades} hit the river.

Eastgate opened up {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for top pair, and that caused his two opponents to muck their cards. After collecting that pot, Eastgate is back up to 50,000.
