Cards have been back in the air for about 35 minutes and Justin Dodds was the first player at risk. He had started the post-dinner session in 5th of 5 and ~3.7M in chips and had been whittled down to ~2M before getting a double through John Lee.
Dodds opened the button and Lee defended his big blind to see a flop heads-up.
Lee checked. Dodds made a continuation bet and was shoved on by the chip-leader, Lee. Dodds held a strong hand and easily made the call for his stack of 1.7M.
Dodds K♠K♥ vs Lee Q♥10♦
Lee had flopped top-pair but was unfortunate to run into a monster from Dodds on the button. Dodds gets the full double and improves to ~4M while Lee still has a commanding lead.
