Mike Leah moved all in from the hijack for 1,550,000, and Farid Jattin used one of his Time Chips to tank for nearly a minute before he called. The rest of the players folded.

Leah turend over Qh10s, but he needed to improve to stay alive against Jattin’s KsKh.

The board came 10h8h2d5dAc, and Leah paired his ten on the flop, but improved no further. Jattin won the pot with his pocket kings to eliminate Leah in eighth place.
