Darren Healy’s chip stack allows for him to keep the pressure on his remaining final table opponents and Rich Dixon found himself in the crosshairs. Dixon faced a decision for most of his chips as Healy put him to the test.
Healy opened for a standard raise in the hijack and Dixon called in the small blind. The flop came out J♠9♣7♣ and Dixon led for 300,000. Healy then raised him to 700,000 and Dixon called after a minute’s time.
The 6♦ came on the turn and Dixon slowed down with a check. Healy bet 700,000 more, putting almost 40 percent of Dixon’s chips at risk. Dixon counted down his stack and folded the J♥ to the table. Healy revealed K♥K♠ to take the pot and put himself up to 6,900,000. Dixon still has 1,850,000 but it could have been much worse were it not for his correct fold.
