At dinner break, there were over 800 people left. With 15 minutes to go in Level 8, the board reads 540 remaining. Can we get down to 270 from 2,563 in just 10 levels? It could very well happen...
Three players limped in, the small blind completed and Amnon Filippi checked his option in the big blind.
The flop fell , the small blind checked and Filippi fired 1,150. Two players called and the next two, including the small blind, folded.
Filippi checked the on the turn and an early-position player bet 3,200. The player in between called and so too did Filippi.
Another jack rivered, the and Filippi checked again. The early-position player bet 5,200, the player in between folded with just 1,500 behind and the action was back on Filippi. He grabbed five yellow T1,000 chips and began riffling them slowly, trying to piece the hand together. Finally he added two black T100 chips and tossed them in.
His opponent tabled for the nut-straight and Filippi mucked his cards. He now sits with just 15,000 chips.
