Richard Leger

Dragos Iosub raised on the button to 275,000 and Richard Leger moved all in out of the big blind for 1,050,000. Iosub called.

It was a race with Iosub’s 4h4d against Leger’s Ah8d. The flop was 8c6d3d and Leger took the lead. The turn was the 5c, giving Iosup an open-ended straight draw, which he hit on the river when the 2s peeled off.

Iosub won the pot and eliminated Leger in sixth place for $17,888. He also takes over the chip lead, and has about a third of the chips in play.

Dragos Iosub – 5,600,000
Richard Leger – Eliminated
