Dodds Dominating


Joel Dodds is now sitting behind what is looking like the largest stack in the room. We caught the action on the turn on this massive hand.

Dodds was going up against Manny Rodriguez with the board showing {2-Spades}{5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{10-Spades}. It was at this point that the fireworks began and both the players got their chips all in.

Dodds tabled {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, ahead of the {j-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} of Rodriguez. There was no help on the river as Dodds took down the big pot.

The chips went in so quickly on the turn that neither player knew if they had the other covered, and by the time the dealer was counting out the chips, it was clear it was going to be a close call.

In the end, Rodriguez was left with only a stack of 25-denomination chips, while Dodds moved up around 80,000.
