In June this year, Elie Payan won $292,825 and a WSOP bracelet after defeating 1017 entries in the $1,500 PLO event. There is a very long way to go in this event but he is currently the chip leader as he tries to win his second bracelet of 2011. We just caught him getting some value on the river in the following hand.
On a board of Payan was seated in the big blind. There was a bet of 12,200 strewn out in front of him and Jan Jachtmann was the player facing a decision from the button. He made the call and Jachtmann flipped over to win the hand with a straight and Jachtmann was left thumping the table in frustration.
