Hallay Eliminates Kabir With Over-Bet

Keneshka Kabir had open-raised preflop from early position and Axel Hallay made the call from the button. Vito Vella also came along from the big blind and the three saw a flop of 2 of Diamonds, 6 of Spade, 9 of Spade, .

Vella checked to Kabir, who made a bet of 75,000. Hallay called, while Vella got out of the way. On the 7 of Hearts, turn, Kabir slowed down and checked, prompting Hallay to bet 125,000 himself. Now it was Kabir who made the call, and the k of Clubs, river completed the board.

Kabir checked once more before Hallay over-bet jammed, covering the 720,000 chips that Kabir had behind. Kabir did not take long before flicking in a call and Hallay showed k of Spade, 7 of Spade, for two pair.

Kabir had to show his 9 of Hearts, 8 of Hearts, for second pair, as is customary with all-in showdowns. The former chipleader left the tournament area, while Hallay crossed the three-million mark by adding Kabir’s chips to his own.

Axel Hallay 3,145,000 1,145,000
Vito Vella 2,010,000 500,000
Keneshka Kabir 0 -1,450,000
