Rifat Palevic - building a bigger tower than Donald Trump

Mohamed El Hamdi raised to 1,600 in mid-position and our chip leader, Rifat Palevic, called in the small blind. The two of them shared a flop of {8-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {6-Diamonds} and Palevic check-called a 4,500 El Hamdi bet. The turn was the {4-Spades} and their was a change in betting lead as Palevic took over and shoved 8,800 into the face of El Hamdi. El Hamdi took off his shades for a closer look at the bet and made the call. The river was the {8-Hearts} and the big stack moved 15,900 into the middle and this was enough to finally scare El Hamdi who folded his hand.
