Chambers Takes Lehmanski's Chips; Becomes New Chip Leader

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6

Maximilian Lehmanski limped in from early position and it folded all the way to Tom Chambers who checked his option from the big blind.

The flop brought the {A-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and Chambers fired out 100,000. Lehmanski pushed out 200,000 total and Chambers called.

Fourth street was the {10-Clubs} and Chambers bet 350,000. Lehmanski thought for a moment before moving calling chips into the middle. The board completed with the {8-Hearts} and Chambers moved a large bet of 750,000 into the center of the table. Lehmanski called and Chambers showed {Q-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for a flush. Lehmanski mucked his cards and Chambers was able to surpass Cherish Andrews as the tournament chip leader.

Joe Cada opened to 100,000 from the cutoff and Jonathan Poche responded by announcing all in from the button. It folded back to Cada who thought for a few seconds before calling. Cada showed {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts} and was relieved to find out he was ahead against Poche's {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}.

The flop was {4-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and Cada retained his lead and had gained hearts to make the flush as well. The turn was the {8-Diamonds} and the river brought the {K-Hearts}, completing Cada's heart flush and sending Poche off of the Pavilion stage.
