Michael Watson: The man to catch right now

Michael "SirWatts" Watson is out new chip leader after winning yet another pot here at the final table.

Taylor Paur opened to 8,000 under the gun and the action folded to Steve O'Dwyer in the hijack. He asked for confirmation of the bet size and then called, Watson was next to act and he also called. Richard Toth in the big blind came along for the ride too.

The flop came down a very draw heavy {K-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} and everyone checked to Watson who bet 20,000. This was enough to fold out everyone except Toth who tossed in the required chips. The dealer put the {2-Diamonds} onto the turn and Toth checked, Watson bet 45,000 and Toth folded.

Watson is now up to 350,000.
