Another enormous chip stack has emerged and we caught a recent hand which showed how has been getting it done. His name is Paul Wilde and he three-bet Maria Ho's preflop 2,500-chip open to 12,500. Ho made the call and a flop was dealt.
Ho checked the flop and then Wilde bet 40,000. This bet was far more than was in the pot and prompted Ho to think heavily about the large bet. Eventually Ho got rid of her hand. Wilde then tabled his for a flopped set of aces. He then went on to say that he didn't like all those spades. "You saved me a lot of chips with that bet," said Ho.
