Schuyler Twaddle, Day 2 Level 24

Schuyler Twaddle opened the pot from the cutoff to 70k and was called by only the big blind.

Flop: 6♥7♠2♦ Pot: 200k

The big blind led into Twaddle on the flop for 85k and was called.

Turn: K♦ Pot: 370k

The big blind now returned the lead to Twaddle with a check. Twaddle bet 120k and was called.

River: 6♠ Pot: 610k

Now things get interesting. The big blind lead out for the 2nd time out of three streets, this time for 450k. Twaddle thought for awhile and commented that he really felt his opponent had nothing. Eventually, Twaddle flung in a chip indicating his call and immediately saw a muck from his opponent. Twaddle tabled the A♠9♥ for Ace-high and scoops the pot of 1.51M.

Twaddle chips up to ~2.4M after his excellent call.
