Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Um... Jake Cody is the Chip Leader


Four players at the featured table took a flop, the most we've seen in a pot today. The dealer gave them {4-Spades} {8-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} to work with, and it checked around to the button. There, Jake Cody fired at the pot with 85,000, and Max Silver check-raised to 205,000 from the small blind. That folded Shawn Buchanan and Dermot Blain out of the way, but Cody called, and it was heads up to the {7-Clubs} turn. Silver bet another 325,000, and Cody thought it over long and hard before calling once again. With a huge pot already in the middle of the table, the two men were content to check through the {Q-Clubs} river.

It turned out to be the card they both wanted. Silver showed up {Q-Spades} {10-Spades} for the pair of queens, but Cody's {A-Spades} {Q-Hearts} had that out-kicked. He'll drag a big pot here, and it appears to move him into the chip lead!
