Kaverman Eliminates Shak to Take the Lead

MrPaulSeaton • Level 12: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Byron Kaverman

Byron Kaverman and Dan Shak clashed in a massive pot, one that would eventually give Kaverman the lead in the tournament.

With 70,000 in the pot preflop, Kaverman bet 25,000 on a flop of {5-Spades}{A-Hearts}{2-Clubs} , but was raised to 115,000 by Shak. Kaverman made the call and the two men saw turn of {7-Diamonds}. That was when Shak moved all-in for his remaining stack of around 140,000, and Kaverman took his time, but he made the call, turning over {A-Spades}{K-Clubs} to Shak's {A-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}. Shak needed a three-outer miracle and it didn't come, the insignificant {9-Hearts} completing the board and sending Shak out of the door.

Kaverman has a massive stack of 900,000 chips - the biggest in the tournament with just 20 players left.
