A Chip Leader Emerges

Kristoffer Myhre
Oh my. A massive pot was played on Tae Joon Noh's table just before the break, with Noh taking the absolute worst of it and crashing out of the tournament. Kristoffer Myhre limped from under the gun, then watched as the next player raised and Noh re-raised. Noh and Myhre had roughly equal stacks of about 50,000 chips. Myhre had acquired his stack by cracking aces.

With action back to Myhre, he called Noh's raise. The player in between also called to a flop of {9-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}. Myhre led into his opponents and was called only by Noh.

The turn was a third club. Myhre bet 18,500, putting Noh deep into the tank. He ultimately announced all in and was snap-called by Myhre.

Myhre: {K-Clubs} {K-Spades}
Noh: {A-Diamonds} {A-Clubs}

Myhre had flopped a set of kings against Noh's pocket aces;Noh had the best flush draw on the turn along with the two remaining aces to overtake Myhre. The river was black, but it was a spade -- the {6-Spades}. The stacks were counted down with Myhre having Noh just barely covered. As a result of that massive pot Myhre has 110,000 chips and Noh is out!
