A pot that ended up including almost all of the chips in the tournament just transpired in the Tournament Hall on the final table of the Grand Prix Canada while 3-way action was underway. The hand involved all three of the players.
Breyer Calvert was on the button and opened with a raise to 5.5M, which found a call from Aaron Marchand. Next to act was Samual Miranda – holding the largest stack by about 30M or so – and he chose to 3b to 15.5M. Breyer then 4b to 34.5M. Aaron folded, and Sam flat called. Time for a flop.
Sam was first to act post-flop, and he checked it over to Breyer, who jammed all in with his 90,900,000 in chips. Sam made the call.
Both players had top pair, and while Samuel had the dominant kicker, Breyer had the flush draw…
Disaster for Samuel! Breyer made two pairs on the turn. The river improved his holdings, but not the result – to give him the flush.
Breyer stacked a pot of 261.4M in chips – over 75% of the total chips in play!
