Wade Ramps Up The Aggression

YorkshirePud • Level 7: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Tristan Wade has retaken the lead in this match after winning consecutive pots from Michael Watson.

In the first hand Watson raised to 45,000 and then folded when Wade came over the top with a three-bet to 112,000.

The second hand saw Wade open with a button raise to 40,000, Watson three-bet to 105,000 but Wade was having none of it and he made the first four-bet of the evening, making it 244,000 to play. This was too much for Watson to pay and he mucked his hand.

Flop Action

MarcC • Level 7: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

We've only seen bet-calls or checked flops so far. That just changed but the hand still fizzled out.

Michael Watson raised to 45,000 and Tristan Wade called to see an all heart {6-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{k-Hearts} flop. Watson continued for 50,000 but was check-raised up to 122,000 by Wade. It looked as if the Canadian was planning something... fold.
