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 {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{K-Spades} flop.

Lehavot ended up check-calling a bet of 75,000, and then checked the {10-Clubs} 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: {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Lehavot: {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

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 {4-Clubs}, a blank for Lehavot.
