Adria Balaguer raised to 60,000 from early position. Chip leader Gary Burks called from the cutoff and Justin McGill called from the button. Cliff Goldkind, however, had other plans. He three-bet to 250,000 from the small blind, which prompted folds from the big blind and Balaguer. Burks called and McGill snap-folded, and we were off to the flop.
Goldkind led out for 300,000, leaving around 600,000 behind. Burks lined up three stacks of green 25,000-denomination chips before releasing, and Goldkind began stacking his new found chips. He is our new chip leader.
