Herald Storming The Counts

A great start for Herold

Julian Herold didn't have the greatest of Day 2's but he is starting like the proverbial house on fire at the beginning of Day 3. He is now up to 260,000 after this hand.

We are on the flop of {J-Hearts} {10-Hearts} {9-Spades} and the big blind checks to Zimnan Ziyard in the cutoff who bets 6,700. Our man Herold is seated on the button and he makes the call before the big blind folds. The turn is the {A-Spades} and Ziyard decided to slow down with a check but Herold continues to pound the pot hard with a bet of 13,500; Ziman calls. The dealer then places the {6-Diamonds} on the felt, which changes nothing, and Ziyard check-calls a 22,700 Herold value bet.
