Amir Lehavot (610,000) has taken the lead from Troy Weber (435,000) who was the chip leader when day 2 started. I took the lead thanks to this hand, Amir Lehavot said in an interview with a poker magazine.
- "I had about 350,000 and another big stack at the table had about 250,000. Most of my chips I won just in that one hand. I had pocket 3s and made a small raise. He min-raised me. I flopped a set, we got it all in and he had top pair."
But there is no reason for Amir to feel relaxed as there is a long way to go and there are still some really big names left in the tournament. Just to mention a few of them, Phil Ivey (325,000), JC Tran (254,600), Bertrand 'Elky' Grospellier (200,000), David Benyamine (199,000).
