Mike Leah opened with a raise to 50,000 from under the gun and cleared the field all the way around t John Kabbaj, who opted to defend from the big blind. The flop saw Kabbaj check-call a bet of 25,000 and then check the turn. Leah bet 50,000, Kabbaj check-raised to 100,000, and Leah thought for a long time before three-betting to 150,000, leaving himself just 15,000 back. Kabbaj four-bet and it went in.
Kabbaj had a full house, which meant Leah would need either an ace or qualifying low on the river to stay alive. The peeled off, and Leah initially thought the low card did it. Unfortunately for him it didn't as it double paired the board.
Leah will take home $31,115 for his seventh-place finish.
