Amir Lehavot, who won a bracelet last year in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Event, opened for 65,000 from middle position only to have Kyle Julius three-bet to 120,000 from the button. Both blinds got out of the way, Lehavot made the call, and it was heads-up action to the flop.
Lehavot ended up check-calling a bet of 75,000, and then checked the turn. Julius continued his aggression and bet 165,000, and after a few moment's deliberation, Lehavot moved all in for 870,000.
"How much?" Julius asked, a tinge of excitement in his voice. As the floor began to break down Lehavot's stack, Julius said, "I call."
Julius held two pair and was out in front, but Lehavot had a monster draw. He could still hit either two pair, trips, a straight or a flush to secure the double.
"Deuce," someone shouted from the rail, knowing a low card would likely secure the win for Julius. The dealer burned one last time and put out the , a blank for Lehavot.
