And just like that our Day 1 chipleader Hafiz Khan is gone. We noticed an empty seat where he was sitting and rushed over to get the details.
Apparently Ronald Lee and Khan got into a blind vs. blind preflop raising war. Khan was the first to go all in for roughly 80,000 after five-bet shoving from the big blind. Lee called and hands were revealed.
The board ran safe for Lee and he again scooped a massive pot - propelling him into the chiplead almost entirely at the cost of Khan.
Lee is sitting on a dominating 210,000 stack.
