After a double bust on Table 17 we have a new chip leader!
We’e not entirely sure what happened on Table 17 before we got there but three players were involved in a hand and the action was on the turn with more than 100k in the middle already.
The board read Q♥ 9♠ 5♦ K♥ and from the small blind the Spaniard Alejandro Pineiro went all-in for roughly half pot.
Luigi D’alterio moved all-in the cut-off and the player on the button, Abdalah Fakhreddine, called all-in as well.
D’alterio had his opponents covered and the cards were revealed:
Pineiro: 9♥ 2♥ (flush draw)
D’alterio: J♠ T♣ (made straight)
Fakhreddine: 5♣ 5♠ (set)
The river fell 2♣ and D’alterio’s straight prevailed. He took out both his opponents and stacked over 400k chips!
