Grigg Gets Run Down

Tom Grigg

Under the gun, Tom Dwan opened to 4,000, and he found two calls including Patrick Healy in middle position. Over in the small blind, Tony Grigg squeezed in a reraise to 17,400 total, and that folded Dwan without incident. The other two called though, and it was three-handed to the flop with a big pot brewing.

The dealer spread out {7-Hearts} {10-Clubs} {3-Clubs}, and Grigg continued out with another 18,600. Healy was a non-believer, though, and he shoved all in for 135,300, enough to fold the player in the middle and put the decision back on Grigg. He took just five seconds to be sure, then made the call with his massive stack.

Healy: {A-Diamonds} {K-Clubs}
Grigg: {K-Diamonds} {K-Hearts}

Healy was crushed, but he seemed oddly confident that he was going to come out on top as he stood up to lean over the table and sweat his own fate. The {Q-Hearts} turn was a decent miss, giving him another four outs to work with as he picked up a Broadway draw. He began to verbally coax a jack from the deck.

River: {J-Spades}

Grigg could barely believe it, and Healy let out a beastly yell in celebration. He's gone runner-runner to scoop up that monster pot, skyrocketing all the way up to 330,000 and into the realm of the chip leaders. It's a big knock to Grigg's count — which would have been massive had he held — but he's still left with about twice the average stack.
