Aymon Hata

Hand #79: Aymon Hata raised to 550,000 on the button and Nick Petrangelo called from the big blind. The flop came {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and both players checked to the {6-Spades} on the turn.

Petrangelo announced a bet of 1,900,000 and Hata called to see the {9-Spades} on the river. Petrangelo slid in a bet of 15 million, more than enough to cover Hata's remaining 5,350,000 chips. Hata thought for a minute and then made the call with his tournament life on the line. Petrangelo turned over {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for a straight while Hata could only muster {k-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for top pair.

The two remaining players will now take a short break while tournament staff prepares for heads-up action.
