Franco Scoops a Huge Pot For Chip Lead

poolshir • Niveau 31: 80,000-160,000, 160,000 ante
Sonny Franco

Evangelos Bechrakis raised to 400,000 from the cutoff and Sonny Franco three-bet to 1,105,000 in the big blind. Bechrakis looked at the bet and then decided to make the call.

The flop came {7-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{10-Spades} on which they both checked through to the {3-Clubs} on the turn. Franco now bet 800,000 and Bechrakis snap-called.

The river completed the board with the {2-Spades} and now Franco barreled a bet of 1,900,000 over the line. Bechrakis cut out calling chips, looked at the remainder of his stack, and then contemplated for a bit longer.

"Do you have ace-king?" Bechrakis asked Franco.

"You have ace-king?" Franco asked Bechrakis.

"You have a pair?" Bechrakis now asked, "ace-queen?"

"Close to ace-queen," Franco confirmed.

"You have jacks?" Bechrakis asked.

"Jacks are no good..." Franco replied.

"Sure?" Bechrakis kept on going.

"I am sure, 100%!" Franco replied.

Bechrakis looked at his stack again, riffled his chips, and then flicked a chip in for the call.

Franco tabled {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} for the overpair and that was enough for Bechrakis to compliment Franco on the hand and pay up.
