Brian Dougherty, Day 2 Level 19

Brian Dougherty is now up to ~1.4M after winning a size-able pot to eliminate a player.

The action was a single-raised pot and four players went to the flop of K♦4♣4♥.

Dougherty check/called a bet of 42k and would see the turn against just one player.

Turn: 2♠

Dougherty check/called a bet of 105k.

River: 2♦

Dougherty check/called a shove of 300k after some thought. He heard “good call” and tabled his 10♦10♠ to reveal he had check/called all three streets with a medium pair and caught his opponent bluffing.

Dougherty is now one of the leaders in the field and is in a nice seat with another two big stacks on his immediate right in Ruslan Arstanaliyev and Victor Ramdin.
