Vasserman (right) Doubles Through Steinman (left) as Andy Andrejevic Watches
It's nearly a half million chip pot and Ilya Vasserman (Huntingdon Valley, PA) is the new chip leader after doubling through former chip leader James Steinman (New York, NY).
On a board of 5♣ 4♣ 3♦, Vasserman bets 20k, Steinman makes it 70k and Vasserman moves all in. After going in the tank, Steinman makes the call.
Vasserman: 6♠ 7♠ (straight)
Steinman: 6♣ 5♠ (top pair, OE straight draw)
Turn: J♠ (Steinman drawing to a chop)
Vasserman hauls in 475k chips and was glad to see Steinman wasn't on a flush draw. Despite the big hit, Steinman is still an average stack at ~100k after shipping more than 200k across the table.
