blaisebourgeois • Level 22: Blinds 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante
Galen Hall

Galen Hall called from the small blind and Lander Lijo raised to 875,000. Galen Hall went all in for 7,325,000 and Lijo snap-called.

Galen Hall: {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Lander Lijo: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Hall was out-kicking Lijo and stayed ahead on the {7-Spades}{q-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop.

The {k-Diamonds} turn gave Lijo a flush draw in addition to chop outs.

The river was the {6-Clubs} and Hall's rail erupted as he became the new chip leader and left Lijo, who's seeking his first bracelet, with less than four million.
