Fitzgerald and Julius Play a Big One

Kyle and Alex mixing it up

In early position, Kyle Julius opened to 60,000, and Alex Fitzgerald flatted next door to take a heads-up flop. It came out {9-Clubs} {6-Hearts} {2-Clubs}, and Julius continued out with another 67,000 chips. Fitzgerald raised to 155,000, Julius called, and the {10-Clubs} dropped on fourth street. Now it went check-check, but something was afoot as the {K-Clubs} competed the board. Julius took the lead again with a bet of 235,000, but Fitzgerald wanted to play for more. He cut out a big stack of green chips and made it 885,000 total, but Julius responded by moving all in for heaps.

Fitzgerald could not call, and he quickly uncapped his cards and slid them into the muck with a grumpy flick of the wrist. The big pot goes to Julius' corner, and he's suddenly found himself on top of the chip counts with just about 3.3 million.
