Nigel Murray

A seven-way limped pot brought out a flop of Qd10s4c.

The blinds checked to Richard Baker in early position (who had kicked off the preflop limping) and he bet 1,200,000. Only Nigel Murray (in middle position) called.

The turn was the 2s, Baker checked, Murray bet 1,700,000, and Baker called.

The river was the 3s, Baker bet effectively 1,000,000, and Murray called all in for that amount.

Baker showed Jh10c for a pair of tens, while Murray tabled 4d4s for a set of fours to double up.

Nigel Murray  –  11,000,000  (28 bb)
Richard Baker  –  15,100,000  (38 bb)
