Patrick Hesser just went flush-over-flush on Jeremy Meacham and is near the 200,000 mark late on Day 1A. 

There are many different ways to build a big stack in tournaments and Patrick Hesser just happened upon one of the most opportune methods via a cooler dealt at the hands of Jeremy Meacham.

Five players saw a flop of A♣K♣J and action checked to David Baker, who bet 2,700 from the hijack. Sitting in the cutoff, Meacham called and Hesser bumped the action up to 8,000 from the small blind. Baker got out of the way and Meacham called to see the 5♣ peel on the turn.

Hesser bet 25,000 and Meacham wasted little time calling before the Q hit the river. Hesser then moved all-in for 50,400 total and Meacham called in short order to see Hesser roll over Q♣10♣ for a flopped straight that turned into a flush.

Meacham could only shake his head as he flashed J♣9♣. With the hand, Hesser is now up to 190,000 and is right behind Phillip Barch for the chip lead. Meacham drops to under 100,000 for the first time in recent memory and will have some work to do in order to fully rebuild.
