Stewart Tempts Staples

• Nível 19: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Jaime Staples

A relatively small ball pot got really interesting on the river late on Day 3 as Jaime Staples and Scott Stewart did battle.

We joined the action on a flop of {10-Clubs}{7-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, with Staples facing a bet of 45,000. He called. The turn of {6-Clubs} saw both men check, but on the {7-Diamonds} river, Stewart bet 99,000 - a pretty clear tease that he had the gutshot required to complete the straight.

"I should snap call just for that!" laughed Staples. But was he 'bound' to call?

"Maybe you're just on a different level to me." said Stewart.

Those words gave way to a Staples fold, and Stewart stacked up the newest chips to add to his mountain.
