Derrick Simon

A player in early position raised to 40,000 and Derrick Simon three-bet to 140,000 out of the big blind. His opponent called.

The flop was Kd5c2s and both players checked to the 8c turn card. Simon bet 70,000 and his opponent moved all in. Simon called and was the player at risk for his last 265,000.

It was a cold deck with Simon showing KhKs and his opponent tabling 8h8d.

They both made sets and Simon was in great shape, just needing to fade one out to double up. The river was the 9s and Simon earned a huge double up and becomes one of the bigger stacks remaining.

Derrick Simon – 823,000
