Musumeci Wins It Right Back

Back On Top

After losing her lead to Derrick Huang, Amanda Musumeci played two consecutive hands which led to her regaining the chip lead.

Duy Ho completed from the small blind and Musumeci checked her option. The dealer laid out a flop of {5-Hearts}{J-Spades}{9-Spades} and Ho tossed in 100,000. Musumeci called and both players checked a turn of {10-Diamonds}. The river was the {3-Clubs} and Ho announced a bet of 250,000 that Musumeci called before Ho was even done pushing out his chips.

"Queen-high," said Ho.

Musumeci showed {9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} for two pair and was able to drag in the pot.

The next hand, Derrick Huang popped it up to 130,000 and it folded around to Musumeci in the small blind who pushed out a three-bet to 305,000. Action folded back to Huang who called.

The flop brought {Q-Hearts}{A-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Musumeci continued out with a bet of 330,000. Huang thought for over a minute before tossing his hand into the muck.
