Fitzgerald to the Front


It looks like Alex Fitzgerald has just taken over the chip lead, but we'll have to wait until the break to get a full round of counts.

The pot began with Fitzgerald raising to 22,000 under the gun, and he found action in three places as Kyle Julius, Artem Kachnyy, and Lawrence Greenberg came along to a four-way flop. The dealer spread out {3-Diamonds} {A-Diamonds} {7-Clubs}, and Fitzgerald continued out with another 67,000. Julius raised to 175,000, and that folded the two monkeys in the middle to send the decision back to Fitzgerald. He wasn't going anywhere, and he stuck in a reraise to 283,000 total. After a few minutes in the tank, Julius surrendered, and that nice pot should move Fitzgerald into the top overall spot.
