€50,000 Super High Roller

Former Champion Smith Starts in the Right Direction

[user68268] • Nivo 1: 500-1,000, 100 ante

On the {10-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds} flop, Dan Smith checked before Mike McDonald bet 6,000. Behind him, Scott Seiver called, and then Smith called as well.

The turn was the {A-Diamonds}, and Smith checked. Smith bet 12,000, Seiver folded, and Smith called.

The river completed the board with the {4-Diamonds}, and Smith tanked, then bet 50,000. McDonald thought it over himself, but eventually folded to give Smith the pot.

Smith moved to 305,000 in chips and will be looking to score a second victory in this event. At the European Poker Tour Season 9 Barcelona stop — when the first Barcelona €50,000 Super High Roller was held — Smith topped a field of 64 entries in this event to win €962,925.

McDonald slipped back to 225,000 in chips, and he will be looking to turn around the early set back in order to make his third final table in a row in this event. In Season 9, McDonald finished fifth and then followed that up with a fourth-place finish in Season 10.
