Our Chip Leader


Radwan Khuri came into today with 112,600 chips and the chip lead. Currently he possesses around 240,000 and maintains the lead. His current table was kind enough to let us know how he crossed the 200,000 mark.

Apparently Khuri was involved in a three-way pot with a board reading {6-}{6-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. One player bet 20,000 and after a series of more bets two of the players were all in and Khuri called.

Khuri: {6-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Opponent 1: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}
Ted Rogers: {A-}{10-}

In the end Khuri held the best of it and raked in the giant pot eliminating Ted Rogers and the other opponent. That hand alone put Khuri over the 300,000 mark, but a few hands later he doubled up a stack and was knocked back down to 260,000.

While we were listening to the stories we managed to catch Khuri playing a hand. Action folded around to the button who made it 5,200. Allyn Jaffrey Shulman folded the small blind, and it was Khuri's turn to act. Khuri three-bet to 22,400. The button then moved all in for about 33,000 more.

Khuri went deep into the tank weighing his potential options. He even measured out the chips and toyed with the idea of a call for a few minutes or so. In the end though Khuri threw it away and the button took down the pot.

After the fold by Khuri was official, the button showed {7-}{7-}, and Khuri realized he made a bad lay-down telling everyone he had {a-}{X-}.
