WSOP - Main Event: Amir Lehavot in the lead with some big names close behind

Tags: amir lehavot, jc tran, main event, phil ivey, wsop.
Posted on 09 July 2009 by "K".

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).

Those nasty sets. The natural enemy of top pair type of hands. But this hand shows: don't minraise. Smile

I've researched about this guy ^^ seems to be a nice and continously good player in the poker scene. Freaky i haven't heard of him before O.o

Here is a guy that payd $10,000 to make mini raises with pocket 3's at the tournament Day 2. Or he plays too much or he is poker mad... but who am i to criticize? I am playing $1 SnG's and i cant win them Tongue

Hope he's a little leauge player punching well above his weight ........ we all like to see an under dog do well dont we?????????????
I like his style thou if you can sit ther eand play small pocket pairs you know he feels comfitable.
I think he is living the dream at the moment but as any do .....he will crash and burn Evil
But good luck to him..you have to be in it to win it..lol Blink

Good enough for unknown player to be chip leader at such a big event but i don't think he won't last long. min raise with top pair, lol, that guy must be mad at himself
I think one of the big guys will get him eventually.

Amir Lehavot recently started a poker website (with strategy content) which can be found at: www.pokerwit.com. The site contains Lehavot’s comments about key hands he played at various times during the WSOP.
It also has the hand (WSOP Main Event 09, Day 2, Level 9, Hand 2) that made him chip leader on day 2. It's pretty interesting and has alredy some comments from other players.

Who is this guy, sorry for my ignorance biut i dont know this player. I heard just now that bertrand elky grospellier was in the lead with 1,6 million chips! For me he is indeed the best poker player in the moment! He is very good!
