Feeling Each Other Out
The new level has begun with significantly less calling than the previous two levels today. Although there is a fair amount of three-betting and continuation betting going on, very few hands are proceeding with more than one street of betting.
About 15 minutes in the level, the first three-bet is finally called. The pot begins with James Carroll opening the button to 125,000. Max Young calls in the small blind before Jasthi Kumar raises to 425,000 in the big. Only Carroll calls.
The flop is . Kumar checks, Carroll bets 300,000, and Kumar folds. Carroll wins the pot, and he's been the primary beneficiary of the small ones so far. This one further extends his three-handed chip lead.
James Carroll - 4,390,000 (88 bb)
Jasthi Kumar - 2,280,000 (46 bb)
