Falk Hits Miracle River to Take Chip Lead

• Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

After a seemingly friendly limp pot, action broke out that would make Adam Falk the new chip leader.

Edward Marcus called from the cutoff for 4,000, Falk called from the small blind and the big blind checked his option.

The flop came {K-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{4-Spades} and the action went check, check, prompting a 15,000 bet from Marcus. Falk made the call and the big blind folded.

The {2-Spades} fell on the turn and Falk checked again. This time Marcus fired out 60,000 and Falk immediately raised all in for 157,000. Marcus made the call and was a monster favorite with {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for a flopped set against Falk's {K-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for top and bottom pair.

The fateful river came {K-Diamonds}, sending the table in an uproar and crippling Marcus, who was left with just 33,000. Falk is our new chip leader with about 350,000.
