Well, he got lucky many times in Heat 1 as he flopped sets numerous times when his opponents had big hands. Nothing could stop Phil this day, and after 8 hours of play, it was all over as JC Tran, last year's winner, was eliminated in second place.
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.
