Lehavot Loses One

We don't know exactly how the action went, but Amir Lehavot was in a heated pot preflop, that ended with Lehavot's opponent all in and at risk.

Lehavot: {A-}{Q-}
Opponent: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

The dealer then spread a {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} flop giving Lehavot a pair of aces, but it was his opponent's set of eights that held the lead. After the {7-Clubs} planted on the turn, Lehavot found himself with a potential out. Now he could hit an ace and steal this pot away. Unfortunately for him a {5-Hearts} fell on the river and Lehavot had no claim on the 120,000 pot.

Lehavot, who is no stranger to deep runs in tournaments, won 2011's Event 7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship. Even though he just lost a hand, he still possesses enough chips to pursue poker glory.
