It’s been a bit of a white-knuckle ride for Kurt Jewell this evening, as his stack has been bouncing between about 500,000 and 2,000,000. He made the wavy-hand motion, the universal signal for this phenomenon, the last time we walked past, and he had been trending upward at the time. His most recent trend is in the opposite direction, though.

In a recent pot, Ross Ramlal opened with a raise in early position, Jewell called in the cutoff, and the small blind called to create three-way action.

The flop was QdJdJc. The small blind checked, and Ramlal moved all in for 650,000. Jewell spent a couple minutes deliberating before calling to put Ramlal at risk, and the small blind folded out of the way.

Ramlal: AcJh
Jewell: AsQh

Ramlal’s trips had him two cards from a double, and he got it as the 9d turn and 2c river completed the board.

Ross Ramlal – 1,675,000 (42 bb)
Kurt Jewell – 1,725,000 (43 bb)
