Adria Balaguer raises to 60,000 in the hijack seat, Andrey Pateychuk three-bets to 160,000 in the cutoff and Michael Watson moves all-in for 90,000 in the big blind without seeing his cards. Balaguer makes the call thus creating a 140,000 side pot between him and Pateychuk and Watson has the chance to triple up.
Flop: 4 3 2
Balaguer check-calls a 230,000 Pateychuk bet.
Balaguer once again checks and Pateychuk maintains the pressure with a 340,000 bet. Balaguer folds and Pateychuk turns over A J and you could tell by Balaguer's face that he had folded the best hand. Watson meanwhile turns his cards over to reveal the mighty T 7 and the Q signifies the end for SirWatts.
