Fred Lavassani

Joe McKeehen raised in early position and Fred Lavassani three-bet in the big blind. McKeehen called.

The dealer fanned a flop of {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and Lavassani continued with a bet. McKeehen instantly dropped two 100,000-value chips for a raise and Lavassani put his remaining stack of roughly 230,000 across the line.

Fred Lavassani: {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Joe McKeehen: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

Lavassani was looking for a ten to stay alive but the {k-Hearts} on the turn sealed his fate and the {4-Hearts} river was just a formality as Lavassani was sent to the payout desk in 7th place for $18,100.
