Play has slowed to a crawl in Level 30. Nearly all pots have been taken down preflop during this level and there have been no showdowns in the last few orbits. Although the action has been primarily small, that doesn’t mean that chips aren’t moving. Jonathan Karamalikis has taken the chip lead over Javier Zarco with a three-bet pot against Georgios Karakousis putting him over that hump.
Karakousis opened to 200,000 under the gun and Karamalikis three-bet to 450,000 on the button. Karakousis called and checked the 9♥8♦4♠ flop. Karamalikis bet 400,000 and that was enough to take down the pot.
Javier Zarco is still doing well with 4,900,000 but Karamalikis’s 5,200,000 currently leads. Karakousis is down to 1,600,000 and in need of a chip resurgence.
