Gottlieb Takes the Lead

Gottlieb holds

Level 19: 5,000/10,000/1,250

It took him six bullets, but it turns out sixth time is the charm as Lev "LevMeAlone" Gottlieb claimed the chip lead in the late stages of the day. In a blind on blind battle against Farid Jattin, Gottlieb raised and called off a 22 big blind shove with {k-Spades}{8-Spades} to win against Jattin's {a-Clubs}{3-Clubs}.

Moved to a different table, Gottlieb was then able to get Markku "ExVang" Koplimaa to make a move on him. On a {3-Hearts}{10-Spades}{6-Diamonds} flop, Gottlieb checked and Koplimaa bet 22,572. Gottlieb check-raised to 60,042, Koplimaa shoved for almost 175K and Gottlieb called it off.

Markku "ExVang" Koplimaa: {k-Spades}{j-Spades}
Lev "LevMeAlone" Gottlieb: {j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

The {2-Clubs} turn and {2-Diamonds} river kept Gottlieb in the lead to eliminate Koplimaa from contention.
