The hood might hide his facial tells, but it can’t hide the 830,000 Patrick Serda has in front of him after winning a battle of wills against Taylor Black. 

Patrick Serda has been climbing up the chip ranks all day and is now at his peak for Day 2 with over 800,000 after taking a down a substantial pot against Taylor Black.

Serda raised under the gun to 18,000 and Black three-bet to 46,000 from one seat over. Action folded back to Serda and he dropped in a call. The flop came out A2♣2 and Serda checked it over to Black, who bet 38,000. Serda came along to the 8♣ turn and checked again. Black bet 70,000 and Serda took a minute before check-raising to 170,000.

With roughly 400,000 behind, Black tanked for three minutes before kicking his cards into the middle. Serda stacked his new chips and now has 830,000 in front of him with the chip leaders firmly in sight.
