Dattani Takes the Lead After Coolering Neves

zedmaster84 • Level 30: Blinds 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
Michel Dattani

Pedro Neves made it 240,000 to go on the button and Michel Dattani three-bet to 960,000 in the big blind. What followed was a four-bet click to 2,000,000 by Neves and the action was back on Dattani.

After using one time bank, Dattani glanced at all stacks and then moved all-in for 6,545,000 to get snap-called by his fellow countryman.

Pedro Neves: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}
Michel Dattani: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}

The {a-Spades}{9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} flop gave Dattani aces full and Neves needed running kings or nines to avoid a major setback. However, the {3-Diamonds} turn and {10-Spades} river runout flipped the stack sizes of the two players from Portugal to see Dattani leap into the top spot.
