Amir Lehavot

Hand #111: Santiago Soriano raised to 5,000,000 on the button and Amir Lehavot made the call. It all kicked off on a {3-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} flop: Lehavot checked, Soriano bet 7,000,000, Lehavot check-raised to 17,000,000 and Soriano moved all in. Lehavot called all in for 22,700,000 total.

Lehavot: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades} for some slow-played aces.
Soriano: {j-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for top pair.

While Lehavot was ahead, the deck was to favor the big stack, bringing a third ten, the {10-Spades} on the turn to crack Lehavot's aces, which did not crack back on the {3-Hearts} river. The Israeli, who lives in the United States, saw a second attempt at a bracelet come up just short and he hit the rail in 2nd place.
