Neal Gay, Day 3 Level 28

Neal Gay put a stop to Young’s tear after making a big move in a 3-bet pot.

Gay opened the pot to 190k in early position and was 3-bet by Young in the hijack to 400k. Action got back to Gay and he made the call to make it a heads-up flop.

Flop: 2♣5♣8♠ Pot: 1.01M

Gay checked. Young bet 325k. Gay moved all-in for ~2.4M. Young tanked for a short while and then mucked his hand sending the pot of 1.66M to Gay. Gay came into the level with ~1.6M and is now up to ~3.6M.
