James Obst

James Obst has been below the starting stack since early in the tournament, but it seems as if he's fighting his way back to the 50,000 chip mark. Obst made it two bets preflop from late position and the player in the small blind called, as did Scott Mayfield from the big blind.

The flop came down {7-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and the player in the small blind led out with a bet. Mayfield folded and Obst decided to make it two bets again. The player in the small blind called.

The turn was the {3-Clubs} and the flop action was repeated. There was a bet, Obst put in two, and his opponent called again. Both checked on the {5-Diamonds} river and after his opponent showed {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades} for queen high, Obst showed {A-Spades}{9-Clubs} for the winning hand with ace high.
