Glen Chorny raised and got 3-bet by Tommy Helms.  Glen called to see the flop of AcTd6d.  Glen bet and Tommy called.

Turn was the 9c and again Glen bet and Tommy called.  River was the 3d and Glen fired 41,500.  Tommy gave it some thought, then called.  Glen showed AsKd for a pair of Aces and Tommy mucked.  “You have Queens?” Glen asked, and Tommy said he did.

Tommy dropped to ~165k while Glen chipped up to ~425k, good for the chip lead.

On the next hand, Glen opened for 9k early and Brenda Lane-Worley raised to 32k from the small blind.  Glen made it 85k straight and Brenda tanked.

She eventually said “fold” and showed pocket Queens.  “Good fold” said Glen, but he did not show as he added more chips to his stack.
