Hagai Stein

We hear commotion all over the Grand Ballroom today with happy players and calls for payouts—a joyous time in the game. Some excitement happened on Table 53 and got there in time to see a very happy Hagai Stein.

He was part of a three-way all in preflop with his AcAs against QdQh and 5c5s. The first eruption came when they saw a five in the window but that was followed by an ace on the Ad7d5d flop for more noise.

But even catching set-over-set on the flop, he still had to sweat diamonds the rest of the way. The Jh turn and Ks river were safe for Stein to eliminate one player and double through the other.
