It was a classic cooler with two premium hands dealt on the table, it was no surprise that all the chips went into the middle preflop.

Sammy Lafleur: {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Daniel Neilson: {q-}{q-}

Neilson was on the wrong side of it and couldn't find help with a completed board reading {6-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{6-Spades}{8-Hearts} and he headed towards the door. Lafleur has a huge stack after that hand, putting him in the chip lead.
