Very quickly Blake has expanded his lead to about three to one. He’s applying more pressure than Jackie can handle at the moment.
Liu – 5.5 million
Whittington – 14 million
The all-ins fade for a moment, as perhaps Liu has gathered just enough bigs to make it dangerous for Blake to continue ripping it in.
She takes two pots in a row on the flop, moving from a nadir of 4.1 m back up to 5.3 m.
Then, another all in from Whittington, who seems to want to end it. He had refused a deal earlier but broached it again. Jackie is determined to play on.
Another flop in position for Jackie, but this time Blake does not simply go away. They see a turn on , which Blake now leads. Jackie takes a long time to process this unusual action, then shoves. Great decision – Blake snap folds.
