Aussie Millions Main Event

Grigg Beats Up Holden

Australian Tom Grigg just won two decent sized pots of WSOP Main Event finalist Sam Holden, and he is now in control of table 49. The first hand we saw was won by Sam Holden who raised under the gun to 525. He got called by Vamplew, Ruthenberg, Grigg and an unknown player. On a {5-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{K-Hearts} flop Holden bet 1,700 and took down the pot.

The very next hand Tom Grigg, on the button, was in a hand against Holden who was now the big blind. The flop was {K-Spades}{10-Clubs}{10-Hearts} when Holden check-called 600. The turn was the {4-Spades} and this time the Brit check-called 1,575. On the river the {6-Hearts} hit and Holden checked once more. Grigg gave it some thought and then carefully bet 3,650. Holden did some serious thinking but finally made the called. He mucked when Grigg showed {10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}.

A couple of hands later the two got at it again. Tom Grigg raised from middle position to 500 and Sam Holden three-bet to 1,500 from the button. After Grigg made the call the flop showed {5-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. Both players checked and the turn was the {2-Clubs}. Grigg check-called 1,800 which gave us river action.

The river brought out the {3-Spades} and Grigg checked for the third time. Holden wasn’t done with the hand and he threw out 3,500. Grigg came out of his shell and check-raised to 8,900 and Holden called. “I think we chop” Grigg said as he turned over {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}. Holden shook his head and mucked giving Grigg another pot.
