Sitbon Scores a Huge Pot; Takes Chip Lead

poolshir • Niveau 16: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Julien Sitbon

The flop read {q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{j-Spades} and there was already about 60,000 in the middle. Jason Zarlenga had 14,000 in front of him as a bet in early position and Julien Sitbon had raised to 46,000 in the big blind. Zarlenga grabbed a stack of 5,000-value chips and put it in as a bet. Sitbon asked for a count. The dealer did so and confirmed it was 151,000 in total. Sitbon decided to shove. Zarlenga snap-called and quickly flipped his cards over.

Julien Sitbon: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Jason Zarlenga: {J-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

They had both flopped a set but Sitbon had the upper hand with the queens. The rest of the board was completed with the {10-Clubs} on the turn and the {4-Hearts} on the river. No help for Zarlenga, Sitbon said he had Zarlenga covered but Zarlenga wanted a count.

After the dealer had dissected Sitbon's stack, she confirmed Sitbon had 684,000 in front of him. Zarlenga counted his own stack and then came to the conclusion he had the shorter stack with 560,000. Zarlenga was sent to the rail in probably one of the biggest pots of the day.
