Richard Leger was sitting with less than ten big blinds and he found a quick, small double through Neal Corcoran. One hand later, Corcoran opened to 85,000 from the button, Sean Shah called in the small blind, and Leger ripped for 620,000 from the big.
Corcoran folded and Shah went in the tank. After two minutes, he called and Leger quickly tabled his hand.
Leger was in great shape and back in the game after the board.
Richard Leger – 1,325,000 (33 bb) Sean Shah – 750,000 (19 bb)
