Aiman Abbassi took the chip lead by elimination Michael Cisco and he now owns 50 percent of the total chips after taking a sizable pot against former chip leader James Lillis.
Zhaoxing Wang opened under the gun to 45,000 and Lillis three-bet to 120,000 on the button. Abbassi called in the small blind. Wang folded and the other two players went heads up to the Q♠7♦5♣ flop. Abbassi checked dark and Lillis bet 125,000. Abbassi called and the same action followed for 225,000 on the 2♦ turn.
Both players checked the 6♠ river and Lillis said “ace-high.” Abbassi turned over K♦Q♦ and took the pot. Lillis falls to 640,000 with Abbassi now playing 1,950,000. Wang is hovering close to 1,000,000 and short stack Noemi Saleh is hanging on with just 190,000.
