Event #19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Patel Soars into Lead

LaneAnderson • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Hiren Patel is our new chip leader.

On a flop of {7-Spades}{9-Clubs}{q-Spades}, a player in middle position bet 15,000 and Samantha Bazan got out of the way. Hiren Patel raised to 42,500 and the player who initially bet made the call.

Patel: {7-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Opponent: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}

The turn and river came down {10-Clubs}{a-Clubs} and Patel scooped a massive pot.

In the very next hand, Patel raised it preflop and faced a three-bet from the player on the button. He four-bet all in and got a fold to win the chips without seeing a flop. Patel now has a massive chip lead in this event.
