Joe Palma, Day 3 Level 28

Joe Palma just took a large percentage of Gerald Johnson’s stack. The action started with Palma opening to 160k from middle position. He was called by Brian Denight in the hijack and Gerald Johnson in the big blind.

Flop: J♥7♣8♥ Pot: 610k

Johnson led out the flop for 650k and was called by Palma. Denight folded and they went heads-up from here on.

Turn: 5♣ Pot: 1.91M


River: 3♦

Check/check once again and they went to showdown. Johnson showed the 8♣6♣ for middle pair on the flop. Palma showed the 10♥10♣ for a better pair and scoops the 1.91M chip pot. This leaves Johnson with just 360k, or 4.5 big blinds.

Palma has ~3.8M after the hand.
