Arsht Starting To Pull Away

David Arsht has not let his foot off the gas since we got back from the break, and he is starting to pull away from his three opponents. On the first hand Al Barbieri raised in the cutoff, and Arsht three bet in the small blind. Barbieri called, and the flop came down {8-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. Arsht led out, and Barbieri laid his hand down.

The next time he was in the small blind, Arsht raised it up, and Donald Auger called in the big blind. The dealer fanned out a flop of {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}, and Arsht continuation bet. Auger called, and the {j-Spades} hit the turn. Arsht led out again, and this time, Auger raised. Arsht called quickly, and the river was the {a-Spades}. Both players checked, and Arsht showed {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. Auger mucked {k-Spades}{k-Clubs} face up, and Arsht took the pot.

Arsht is now up to 1.9 million, while Barbieri and Auger are both under 300,000.

Al Barbieri us 280,000 -180,000
