Big Stacks Clash As Nipun Java Takes Controlling Chip Lead
Andreas Freund opens to 60,000 from the button and Nipun Java three-bets to 175,000 from the small blind. Freund calls to see the flop.
Both players check and the falls on the turn. Java check-calls a bet of 190,000 to see the river.
The double pairs and completes the board, with Java checking for a third time.
Freund reaches deep into his stack and pushes out a bet of 275,000, with Java immediately announcing "call".
Freund throws over for the second nut flush but it's no good, as Java tables for the nut flush.
Freund picks up his cards and throws them towards the muck, as Java takes in a massive pot that makes him the controlling chip leader of Event #46.
He is now playing just under 2,500,000 with his nearest competitor playing close to 1,700,000.
