Saul Uses Kings to Jump to 550K

Kevin Saul

Kevin Saul just made his way to the Amazon Room in the Purple Section and wasted little time in getting right back to work on building his stack. This pot right here put him at 550,000 and into the pole position here on Day 2b.

Action folded to the player int he cutoff seat and he raised to 3,500. Kevin Saul three-bet to 10,300 from the big blind and the cutoff seat quickly called. "I was O.K. with folding, but this hand I can't fold," said Saul after his opponent called.

The flop came down {Q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Saul fired 13,300. HIs opponent quickly called to see the {3-Spades} land on the turn. Both players checked.

The river completed the board with the {3-Hearts}. Saul fired 35,000 and his opponent snapped. Saul tabled the {K-Hearts}{K-Spades} for kings and threes. His opponent showed a second-best {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}, but Saul would win this one.
