Championship Day 1B: Bala Patur Knocks Out a Player

$3,500 WPT LHPO Championship
$2,000,000 Guaranteed | Structure
Level 9:  1,000/1,500 with a 1,500 ante
Day 1B Players Remaining:  432 of 1,089

Bala Patur raised from the hijack to 3,500, the player in the big blind moved all in for 33,000, and Patur thought for a while before he called with Ac8h.

The big blind turned over AhJs, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jc10c9c4h6c, and Patur flopped a flush draw with an open-ended straight draw and completed his flush on the river to win the pot and eliminate his opponent from the tournament.

Bala Patur  –  280,000  (187 bb)
