Andy Black has had a great start in the first few levels and is now up to 82,500 after a hand that has decimated Sofia Lovgren.
Black raises to 600, Lovgren three-bets to 1,300 and Black makes the call. The dealer hands us the flop of J 7 3 and Black checks to Lovgren who bets 1,600. The action falls back to Black and he check-raises to 4,500 stopping Lovgren in her tracks. After a few moments of thinking time she makes the call. The turn is the 3 and Black bets very quickly. The amount is 4,600 and Lovgren makes the call. The final card is the 4 and Black once again bets with the pace of a cheetah. The amount is 15,000 and a Lovgren call would leave her hanging precariously on the chip precipice. She does make the call and Black turns over 7 7 for the full house and Lovgren mucks her hand.
"It helps when you bluff a lot," says Black.
Black ~ 82,500
Lovgren ~ 6,000
Other stacks on that very dangerous table include Jamie Burland 21,000, Leo Margets 35,000 and Kevin Vandersmissen 15,200.
