Chuttani Soars into Chip Lead

will_shill • Level 7: Blinds 400-800, 800 ante

A hand was in progress between Ramin Hajiyev and Sahil Chuttani that had amassed close to 80,000 chips in the pot. The full board of {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{4-Diamonds} was out and Hajiyev had checked to Chuttani.

Chuttani moved all in for over 50,000, covering Hajiyev who took his time, pausing his music and cracking his knuckles as he contemplated the decision.

He eventually called and Chuttani flipped over {5-Clubs}{5-Spades} for a flopped set. Hajiyev's hand {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts} was turned over and he was eliminated.

After the hand, tablemate Aaron Duczak informed us that Hajiyev had check-called on all three streets.
