James Carroll

Ami Alibay limped from under the gun, James Carroll raised from the hijack to 400,000, and Jerry Wong  defended his big blind. Alibay called as well.

The flop came Js9s4h, it checked to Carroll who bet 550,000.  Wong folded and Alibay called.

Both players checked the Kh on the turn. The river brought the 5c, Alibay checked and Carroll bet 875,000. Alibay used a Time Chip then decided to call.

Carroll tabled Kd10d for top pair and Alibay mucked.

James Carroll  –  19,075,000  (127 bb)
Ami Alibay  –  2,350,000  (16 bb)
