Sam Batra, Day 3 Level 26

Sam Batra has just scooped the biggest pot of the tournament thus far. Action folded to Jason Paster on the button and he opened the pot into McNally and Batra’s blinds. McNally folded and Batra put in a big 3-bet to ~900k (1.1M behind). Paster then moved all-in and Batra would make the call and reveal a big set-up situation.
