Mike Takayama has raked in some consecutive big pots, putting him in the current top three chip leaders.
In one, he reraised the cutoff’s min raise to 4200, which was then called. The flop comes 7♣ 10♦ K♦ and was checked to Takayama who then bet 3000. A call saw the 9♦ fall on the turn and Takayama move all in, to which his opponent reluctantly folded.
Another hand saw Takayama muscle up against Sorokin Maxim. On an unraised flop of 6♣ 2♣ 8♦, Takayama bet out 2000, which was then raised by Maxim to 6000. Takayama shipped his stack all in and forced the Russian to fold his hand. Takayama confessed moments later to us that he just had a flush draw.
Maxim’s stack is now down to just 15000.
