Skip Wilson Takes the Chip Lead, Knocks Annette Down to 325,000
Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Annette Obrestad opens the pot for 45,000 from under the gun, Skip Wilson raises to 150,000 from early position, Obrestad shoves and Wilson calls all in for 1,065,000.
Obrestad shows AK while Wilson shows QQ.
The board comes J83Q7.
The Q hits the turn and Wilson cheers as he makes top set. "I don't know why he cheered, that's the worst card in the deck for him", says Obrestad. She is drawing very live at this point with the nut flush draw and a gutshot straight draw.
The river bricks and Wilson takes the chiplead with just about 2.2 million. Obrestad is now on the short stack with just 325,000 in chips after the hand.
Wilson - 2,200,000 (110 bb)
Obrestad - 325,000 (16 bb)
