Jeff Wicker just moved up to ~200k after winning a big 3-way pot. The board read Q♥7♥4♥5♦ when all the chips went in on the turn. Wicker held the A♥K♥ against the 5♥5♠ and the 4♠4♣ from the two villains. The river brought the 6♦ and secured the massive pot for Wicker.
Wicker has ~$331k in career earnings and is coming off of a deep’ish run in the Big Stax XXI 300. He made it all the way to 34th for $2,238 and has since remained quiet on the tournament scene. The consistent Big Stax performer has an formidable stack now and will now look to continue improving until the bags come out at 12:30 AM.
