Big Mistep for the Day 1b Chip Leader

Guy Bachar on Day 1b.

Back on Day 1b, Guy Bachar did better than any other players and finished as chip leader. He carried that momentum into Day 2 and continued to add to his stack. He was going the same here on Day 3, but he recently hit a major roadblock.

We're not sure of all the betting, but we do know that Bachar six-bet all in preflop and Antonin Duda called off for 574,000, creating a pot of nearly 1.2 million.
Bachar: {8-Clubs}{7-Spades}
Duda: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

Bachar sat stoically as the TV cameras swarmed. He seemed content with the possibility of cracking kings, but when the {5-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop made that highly unlikely, he cracked. Bachar mumbled a bit, rose from his seat and walked away from the table. He returned in time to see the {9-Diamonds} turn give him a gut-shot straight draw, but the {Q-Diamonds} river would not complete it.

With that, Bachar sent more than half his stack to Duda and was knocked down to average.
