Youssef Can't Be Stopped


Sam Youssef has done it again and now it is looking extremely likely that he will finish up the day with the chip lead.

We missed the latest massive hand, but Youssef was more than happy to tell us how he managed to be sitting behind a stack of over 250,000.

Apparently there was plenty of action between Yousseff and James Dempsey. Youssef held {k-}{10-}, while Dempsey held {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}. The flop housed a {k-} along with two hearts and this is when all the chips went in.

Dempsey would need a heart that would never come as the pair of kings for Youssef was enough to see his stack skyrocket well ahead of any other player in the room.
