Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Herm Hooks Habib

• Taso 16: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
Hasan Habib

After a player opened for 11,000 and Hasan Habib called, Mark Herm three-bet to 41,000. The original raiser folded, and then Habib called to see a flop of {7-}{5-}{4-}. Herm checked, Habib moved all in for his last 80,000 or so, and Herm snap-called.

Habib: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Herm: {4-}{4-}

Habib had the best of it preflop, but Herm flopped a set to take a massive lead in the hand. The {8-} turn meant Habib could chop with a six and still win with a jack, but neither card came as a {10-} blanked on the river.

Meanwhile, Malachy Hagan has also been eliminated from the tournament.
