Pastor Cut in Half


First in from middle position, Kimon Lehman raised to 54,000, and Ramil Boyazitov flatted in the small blind. From the big, Juan Manuel Pastor shoved all in for about 740,000. Lehman called all in for 380,000, Boyazitov mucked, and the cards were on their backs.

Lehmann: {A-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds}
Pastor: {J-Spades} {J-Diamonds}

The {10-Diamonds} {Q-Spades} {J-Hearts} flop was a fine sight for Pastor, reducing Lehmann to four outs for his tournament life.

Turn: {K-Hearts}

Gulp. Pastor was less than thrilled with the gutshot coming in, and he was already drawing dead to a chop before the {3-Spades} river. When he paid out his debt, he was left with just about 350,000.

Those chips were going into the very next pot, too...
