Suer Doubles; Savage Takes the Lead

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship       

On a flop of K J T, Gil Sacks (bb) bet 600k and Bobby Suer (utg) shoved for another ~1.3 million on top.  Gil made the call showing KQ for top pair with open-ended draw.  Bobby tabled Q9 for the flopped straight.  Gil needed an Ace or 9 just to chop the pot.  The last two came Q 3 and Bobby doubled up to ~3.2 million.

Trevor Savage tangled with Vadim Shlez, who paid off Trevor's river bet, only to see that Trevor had made a back-door flush (Vadim did not show).  It appears that Trevor has now edged out Vadim for the chip lead.  Fresh chip counts coming up at the next break.
