Lehavot Chipping Away at Solomon

[user153638]

The action as of late has been a lot of raise and take it. Lehavet seems to be getting the better of the back and forth as he has Solomon down to around 800,000.

To give you an example of the action, in a recent hand Solomon raised to 100,000 on the button only to have Lehavot pot it to 300,000. Solomon released and Lehavot took down the pot.

Sam Stein Eliminated in 3rd Place ($264,651)

• Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante
Sam Stein - 3rd place
Sam Stein - 3rd place

Sam Stein had the unfortunate position of being the short stack in between Amir Lehavot and Jarred Solomon. From the big blind Stein moved all in preflop following an opening raise from Lehavot in the small blind. Lehavot called and the hands were tabled.

Showdown:
Stein: {A-Spades} {6-Diamonds}
Lehavot: {A-Clubs} {K-Spades}

Stein was in bad shape and needed help to double up. He whiffed on the flop when it came {Q-Hearts} {9-Spades} {5-Clubs}. Stein needed running straight cards or one of the remaining sixes to double up. The turn came {3-Spades} followed by {7-Hearts} and Stein's tournament was over.

Stephen Chidwick raised to 80,000 from the cutoff only to have Amir Lehavot reraise from the button. The blind quickly got out of the way and Chidwick moved all in for around 620,000 total. Lehavot made the call and it was essentially a flip.

Chidwick: {A-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Lehavot: {K-Clubs}{J-Hearts}

The crowd was on its feet as the flop came down {9-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{10-Spades}, giving Chidwick two pair and sending his supporters into a jovial celebration. However, they seemed to overlook the fact that Lehavot still had outs. The {8-Hearts} turn kept Chidwick in the lead, but it also gave Lehavot an open-ended straight draw.

What was once celebration quickly turned into shock and awe as the {Q-Spades} peeled off on the river and gave Lehavot the winning Broadway straight. Chidwick's supports were silenced as their man shook hands with the remaining players and made his exit in fourth place.
