Chambers Takes Down Huge Pot; Cripples Shabelnyk

Tom Chambers

Tom Chambers opened to 45,000 from the hijack and Valentyn Shabelnyk called from the big blind.

The dealer pounded the table and dealt out a {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop . Shabelnyk checked to Chambers who continued out for 85,000. Shabelnyk tossed out a call and the {A-Hearts} fell on the turn. Shabelnyk checked for a second time and Chambers opted to move 225,000 into the middle this time. Shabelnyk called once again.

Fifth street was the {4-Hearts} and Shabelnyk checked. Chambers moved a massive bet of 900,000 to the middle. Shabelnyk announced a call and showed {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}.

Much to the heartbreak of Shabelnyk, he was behind the {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} of Chambers whose flopped two pair turned into a full house on the turn. Chambers is now the commanding chip lead of the tournament with 2,930,000.
