Event 41: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Montgomery Gives it Up

Scott Montgomery opened to 1,200 from middle position and found callers in both the player in the cutoff and the big blind for a three-way pot.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and both the player in the big and Montgomery checked. The cutoff player flung a 1,800 bet into the middle, which was enough to get the player in the big blind to fold, but not Montgomery, who made the call.

The turn brought a {J-Clubs} and Montgomery checked again, prompting a 3,800 bet from his opponent. Montgomery didn't take long to slide his hand into the muck.

Montgomery, who final tabled the main event in 2008 and won a bracelet in 2010, is still in good shape with 44,000.
