Montgomery Becomes a Chip Millionaire

Level 16: 4,000/8,000 (8,000)
Entries: 181/1,226

Alex Montgomery, who entered today with a top 10 stack of 499,000 in chips is the first player we noticed over 1 million in chips. Montgomery recapped an earlier hand which got him on his way.

A player opened from under the gun before three players called including Montgomery from the big blind.

The players in the blinds checked the 1053 flop before the under-the-gun player bet 26,000. Another player flat-called before the player in the small blind jammed for 126,000. Montgomery came in over the top for his table-leading chip stack and the under-the-gun player went into the tank before he called.

Small Blind Player: K2
UTG Player: QQ
Alex Montgomery: 33

Montgomery was ahead with his set of treys and remained ahead after the 9 turn. The 5 river improved the small blind player to a flush but Montgomery won the hand with a full house.

“Boom!” said the player in the small blind prematurely before realizing he lost his chip stack.

We will update some of the other bigger stacks from around the room on the first break.

Alex Montgomery – 1.1 million
