John Martin, Day 3 Level 29

Martin opened from the cut-off to 250k and was re-raised by Horatio Hu on the button to 675k. Action folded back to Martin and he made the call to see the flop heads-up.

Flop: 2♠Q♠4♦ Pot: 1.59M

Martin checked. Hu bet the flop and was raised by Martin. Hu put in the third flop bet, all-in for ~3.5M. Martin instantly called.

Martin 4♣4♠ vs Hu K♠K♦

Turn: 8♦

River: J♠

Martin flopped his set in a great spot against Hu’s over-pair and moves up to ~10M and is now once again in a great position in the event.

Horatio Hu is eliminated in 6th place for $14,240.
