Amir Tawfik

There was yet another preflop battle at Lascelles Peart’s table, but this time it was for one of the biggest pots of the tournament thus far.

Peart was all in from the small blind for about 400,000 and got called by Amir Tawfik from under the gun.

Peart tabled Ad9d and was in rough shape against Tawfik’s 9c9s.

The flop was QdTs9h, keeping Tawfik well ahead, but the 2d turn card gave Peart much more equity with the nut flush draw. The river was the Th and Tawfik hit the rail in 66th place. He took home $5,800 for his efforts.

Tawfik won the pot and takes the tournament chip lead.

Amir Tawfik – 865,000
Lascelles Peart – Eliminated
