Championship: Cory Waaland Moves to the Money

$1,650 Winter Poker Open Championship
Level 18: 3,000/6,000/1,000 Ante

Shortly after he was moved to the table with “all the chips”, Cory Waaland played a big pot against some of those chips — Jonathan Lagace-Bastien.

The flop was Th4d2s and Lagace-Bastien lead for 20,000. Waaland made it 75,000 and Lagace-Bastien called.

The turn was the Tc. Lagace-Bastien checked and Waaland bet 20,000. Lagace-Bastien called and they were off to the river.

The board completed with the 3d and Lagace-Bastien checked again. Waaland counted down his stack, then bet out 50,000. Lagace-Bastien called. Waaland flipped over KsKc and took the pot over Lagace-Bastien’s queens.

Waaland now claims about 430,000 chips while Lagace-Bastien remains among the big stacks in the room.
