Matt Cooper has reclaimed his chip lead in the flight in a big way. He’s up to over 415,000, saying “Take that, Eriquezzzo!” since he’s already passed Ryan’s Day 1 chip lead.
To get this last batch of chips, Matt opened from the middle and got a call from the cutoff, then the button raised. Both players called to see the flop fall K 9 9. Matt led out for 35,000, the cutoff called, and the button folded. Turn was an 8 and Matt launched 60,000 into the pot.
The player in the cutoff called to see an innocuous 3 come on the river. Matt jammed, having his opponent covered. The cutoff tanked for a while before finally calling off all his chips with KT (Kings-up). Matt held J9 for trips to take the pot, sending his opponent to the rail.
