Matthew Klein Is Running Away With It

Event 3: $500 + $60 No Limit

Matthew Klein raises from the button to 55k, and Perry Johnston calls from the big blind. The flop comes J J 10, and both players check.

The turn card is the 9, Johnston bets 100k, and Klein thinks for a bit before min-raising to 200k. Johnston quickly calls, and the river card is the A. Johnston checks, and Klein says, "300."

Johnston says, "I think you got there," and he folds Q9 face up -- two pair, jacks and nines, with a missed open-ended straight-flush draw. Klein turns over 87 for a jack-high straight on the turn as he takes the pot.

Johnston still has about 545k, while Klein increases his chipleading stack to about 1.65 million -- more than twice as much as anyone else at the table. (Colin Maneval is second with 725k.)
