Spitzberg Moves Up

On the turn of a {4-Hearts} {Q-Clubs} {5-Hearts} {7-Spades} board, we watched the final betting actions of Josh Kay's day. It was Paul Spitzberg who did the first betting, and Kay raised in position. Spitzberg shoved, though, and Kay was put to the test for about 500,000 chips he had behind. He called after some time, and the news was not at all good.

Kay: {7-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds}
Spitzberg: {Q-Hearts} {7-Hearts}

Two pair versus two pair, but it was Spitzberg with a hammer lock on the pot. Poor Josh Kay had to wait about four minutes for the cameras to assemble around the table, and the river {J-Spades} finally put him out of his misery.

With that pot, Paul Spitzberg puts his name among the chip leaders. He's got about 1.8 million, and he's having a hard time stacking them. In a case of the "sick brag", he spoke up. "This is my only problem with tournament play. When I do well, I can't handle all the chips in front of me." There were a few hushed looks of disdan from the shorter-stacked players at the table, but Spitzberg is a likable guy over there, the chatty one at the table.
