Tuan Le had high hopes of winning the second leg of the triple crown today, as he came into play second in chips. However, he fell down to average after doubling two opponents up early, and he has just been eliminated by Eddy Sabat in brutal fashion.
Sabat open limped from the cutoff, as did Levi Berger from the button. Le made it 43,000 to go in the small blind, and when it got to Sabat, he tried the old limp reraise play, with a raise to 150,000. Berger quickly folded, and after a few moments of though, Le moved all in for his final 416,000. Sabat asked for a count, and though he didn't look thrilled about it, he slid the call in.
Le was well out in front, and it stayed that way on the . The came on the turn, and Le looked like he would surely double up. Well, you read the title of the post, so you know what's coming next.
The whole table, including Sabat, let out a big groan at the site of the brutal river beat, and a shocked Le could only shake his head in disbelief as he headed towards the rail. After taking that huge pot, Sabat is now our chip leader with 1.36 million.
