Pupillo Takes Chiplead Without Seeing a River
John Sacha reached 10 million of the 17.4 million in play, but his stacks started sliding to Nick Pupillo shortly thereafter.
Pupillo 4-bets to 1.5 million, gets a call from Sacha, then makes it 950,000 more to go on the flop and Pupillo took the chips.
There's an open from Pupillo, a few hands later, a 3-bet to 860,000 from Sacha and a call from Pupillo. Sacha makes it 700,000 to go on the K-9-6 flop and Pupillo comes along. The turn is , Pupillo bets 1,850,000 and Sacha lets go.
That hand pushed Pupillo to the chiplead, and Pupillo wasn't done yet.
A few hands after this, Sacha opens, Pupillo 3-bets preflop to 2,000,000 and gets Sacha to lay down again, causing Pupillo to extend the lead 3-handed.
Two-thirds of Sacha's stack has gone to Pupillo without a showdown.
