Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Lehavot Rivered, Crippled

Amir Lehavot and Moritz Kranich each got a million chips into the pot preflop, and it was the classic queens-versus-ace-king race. It was Lehavot in the lead with {Q-Spades} {Q-Hearts}, and Kranich was trying to get there with {A-Diamonds} {K-Hearts}. He was all in for 938,000 after the initial raises were pulled in, and Lehavot had him covered by just 117,000.

The {5-Clubs} {8-Hearts} {7-Hearts} flop was a swing and a miss for Kranich, as was the {10-Clubs} turn. He caught lightning in a bottle on the river, though, as the dealer gave him the {K-Spades} for the double. He appears to be up over 2 million.

It's a crushing blow to Lehavot. He didn't say a word, but you could see the disappointment in his whole body. He lowered his head and tried to shake it off, staring longingly at the few chips he has left.

Chips Count

Amir Lehavot il 117,000 -1,082,000
