Level 14: Limits 1500/3000
Average Chips: 35,417
With a big bet left, Amnon Filipi completed in Stud, setting up an inevitable all in. Only Barry Levy, a former Borgata H.O.R.S.E. champion, gave action.
On fifth they got all the chips in, with Amnon turning over a card to show a one liner, and then a hidden pair of tens as well. The equity was extremely close, as Barry had tens and one higher card, a blocking Filippi’s straight opportunity.
However, the river gave Barry two pair as he binked a six, which he flipped up quickly, while Amnon studied his last downcard.
He then reached over to Barry’s board and grabbed that to complete his straight.
The two shook hands, and Amnon is out. It’s a breather for Levy, who is still under average but now with a playable stack.
