Play Ended

Nível 18 : 2,500-5,000, 5,000 ante

Play has ended and the 62 remaining players have just bagged up their chips. A recap of today's action and the chip counts is to follow.

Alberquerque Running Away With Lead

Nível 18 : 2,500-5,000, 5,000 ante

The player in late position raised to 11,000 and was called by Ilkin Amirov in the hijack and Philip Alberquerque in the big blind.

The flop came {4-Spades}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs}, Alberquerque checked, the initial raiser bet 15,000. Amirov folded and Alberqueque called.

They both checked through the {9-Hearts} on the turn and the {6-Spades} on the river. Alberquerque tabled {A-Spades}{2-Hearts} and that was enough for his opponent to muck his hand.
