Klein Takes the Chip Lead

GeoffFisk • Level 16: 2,500-5,000, 5,000 ante
Loren Klein

One hand after taking a sizable pot from Daoud Majid, Loren Klein got the rest of Majid's stack.

Klein opened to 11,500 in the hijack, and Majid called in the small blind. The flop came {k-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}, and Majid check-called an 8,000 bet from Klein.

Majid checked and Klein continued for 25,000 on the {q-Diamonds} turn, with Majid calling.

Majid checked again on the {7-Spades} river, and Klein went all in, with Majid making the call for his remaining stack. Klein turned over {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for trip kings, sealing Majid's elimination and sailing into the chip lead early in the first level of Day 2.
