Event #11: $1,500 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Yankee Doodle Dandy

• Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Amnon Filippi

Amnon Filippi just became a contender for this six-max crown courtesy of what has to be considered a cooler.

We caught the action post-river with Filippi all in for his tournament life and final 35,400 on a {3-Spades}{8-Hearts}{a-Spades}{10-Spades}{a-Diamonds} board. His heads-up opponent, one Jerrimie Pacheco, counted out and made the call with {a-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, but his trips were no good.

Filippi held {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} and after late-registering and nursing a middling stack for most of the day Monday, he now has a sizable stack for the first time in this event.

Chip Counts
Amnon Filippi us 125,100 125,100
