Cunha Jr. Takes the Lead

[user139916] • Nível 15: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

With the board reading {6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{5-Spades} and about 40,000 in the pot, Joao Batista Cunha Jr. had raised all in from under the gun. Karl Schwing was in middle position with 21,000 committed post flop, and he tank called all in for about 90,000.

Cunha Jr.: {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Schwing: {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}

Cunha Jr. led with a seven-high straight and held up through the {9-Clubs} river to eliminate Schwing in 23rd place.

While that hand was going on, Joseph Montervino busted in 24th place at one of the other tables.
