Event #56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Haddad Doubles To Take His First Heads Up Chip Lead

• Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Nemer Haddad limped his button again before Hasan Anter raised to 560,000. Haddad moved all in and Anter began his tank. After a couple of minutes he decided to make the call and the hands were turned face up.

Haddad: {6-Clubs}{6-Spades}
Anter: {a-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

The flop came {9-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades} and Haddad remained in front. The turn was the {8-Diamonds} which gave Anter a flush draw and some extra outs to chop the pot with a straight. However, the river not only blanked with the {6-Hearts}, but it gave Haddad a set.

Haddad now takes the chip lead with 9,100,000 to Anter's 6,200,000.
