Dibella Barrels, Julius Drags a Big One

Kyle Julius

From the button, Kyle Julius opened with a raise to 180,000, and Kyle Julius defended his big blind to see a flop heads-up.

It came {2-Diamonds} {A-Hearts} {6-Diamonds}, and Julius check-called 225,000. He check-called another 340,000 after the {8-Spades} turn, and the {A-Clubs} filled out the board on fifth. Dibella was barreling right way, and he made one final bet of 425,000. Julius wasted no time calling.

"Nothing," Dibella said, and the table waited for him to show. He eventually rolled over his {4-Spades} {5-Hearts}, then Julius flopped his superior {A-Spades} {J-Spades} down onto the table to drag the pot.

It was a big one, and it gives Julius a bit of a cushion at the top of the leaderboard. He's got about 5.5 million now, the first players to crest that milestone.
