Finger Close to Ten


The table folded around to the blinds, and Martin Finger raised to 160,000 first in. His neighbor David Boyaciyan flatted, and off they went heads-up.

The dealer spread out {J-Spades} {Q-Hearts} {6-Clubs}, and Finger bet 160,000. Boyaciyan called quickly, and Finger checked to him after the {10-Hearts} hit fourth street. Now it was Boyaciyan doing the betting, and he made it 280,000 to go. Finger called with just a moment's hesitation, and the {K-Diamonds} completed the board. Trading roles again, Finger led back out with 300,000, and Boyaciyan grumbled and made the call.

Finger tabled {K-Hearts} {J-Clubs}, and his two pair were good. Boyaciyan mucked, and he's slipped back down around 800,000 now, perhaps a bit lower. Finger's closing in on the ten-million-chip mark, but we've got him eyeballed at just a smidge less than that.
