Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Lehavot Takes About Half of Stein's Stack

Amir Lehavot

Amir Lehavot raised to 65,000 in the cutoff and Sam Stein called on the button.

The flop came down {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and Lehavot made a contination bet of 85,000. Stein raised to 210,000, but Lehavot wasn't done with the pot just yet. He made it 465,000 total. Stein though for a minute before calling, landing the {A-Hearts} on the turn. Lehavot slowed down with a check, leading to a bet of 310,000 from Stein.

"Pot," said Lehavot.

That was not what Stein wanted to hear, as he spent the next four minutes in the tank before giving it up.
