Level 12: 1,000/1,500 (1,500)
With the blinds ever increasing, the action becomes faster and faster and we are seeing all-ins virtually every minute.
Yigal Shafian just eliminated his countryman Assaf Cabra in one of those all-ins. Both had all their chips in the middle before the flop with Assaf Cabra being minimally ahead with TXTX while Yigal Shafian had two overcards with AXQX.
But a queen in the door of the flop sealed Cabra’s fate. The board fell QX5X2XJXKX and Cabra was eliminated from this flight, while Shafian, who barely covered Cabra doubled up.
Yigal Shafian – 61,000
Assaf Cabra – 0
