The Lakhitov Factor

• Level 26: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

Matthew Berkey check-called a bet from Mikhail Lakhitov on a {7-Clubs} {Q-Spades} {9-Spades} flop, and we joined the action as the {K-Hearts} landed on the turn. Berkey checked again, then called 255,000 more chips to put over a million chips in the middle On the river, the {6-Diamonds} drew checks from both players.

Berkey tabled {J-Diamonds} {J-Clubs}, and that was good news for Lakhitov. He showed {A-Hearts} {K-Spades}, and top pair is good enough to send the pot his way. It moves him up into second place with 2.43 million now.
