Shankar Pillai, Day 3 Level 30

Shankar Pillai continues to pull away from the field with some aggressive play during Level 30.

Jason Paster opened the pot to 260k from early position and Pillai 3-bet to 725k on his immediate left. Action folded back to Paster who made the call.

Flop: K♥10♦5♣ Pot: 1.86M

Paster checked. Pillai bet 650k and was called.

Turn: 2♠ Pot: 3.16M

Paster checked. Pillai continued to fire with a bet of 1.36M. Paster made the fold and Pillai takes down a size-able pot without showdown moving up to ~15.1M and now has nearly double the 2nd place stack.
