Lavelle Surrenders to Hays

• Level 31: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante
Jeffrey Lavelle's still flying high!
Jeffrey Lavelle's still flying high!

Foster Hays raised to 300,000 from under the gun and the action folded around to Jeffrey Lavelle who called from the button. Casey Kelton and Allan Le folded from the small and big blinds respectively before Hays led out for 500,000 after the flop of {K-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{3-Spades}. Lavelle kicked his hand into the muck and Hays picked up the pot.

Though there may not be that much action at this final table right now, we've still got a decent crowd watching on and Lavelle's supporters are more vocal than ever. With every pot he takes down, the cries of "J-E-F-F, Jeff, Jeff, Jeff!**" go up from either side of the rail.

**Apologies to Fireman Ed and the New York Jets!

A Huge Chopportunity!

• Level 31: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante

The biggest pot of the tournament just played out at this final table, but incredibly, we're still four-handed!

Allan Le open-shoved for 975,000 from under the gun and both Foster Hays and Jeffrey Lavelle snap-called from the button and small blind respectively. Casey Kelton looked up from his cards aghast, and for the first time in two days of action at this final table, he finally spoke.

"I'm gonna let you guys have this one," Kelton said, as he tossed his hand into the muck.

Once the dealer had completed cutting down the stacks, he spread the flop of {8-Spades}{Q-Spades}{K-Clubs}, which both Lavelle and Hays checked before doing the same on the turn of the {J-Diamonds}.

The crowd started buzzing when the {10-Clubs} appeared on the river, as if something big was about to happen. It did. Hays open-shoved and Lavelle insta-called ...

... but it turned out to be a massive anti-climax, much to the crowd's disappointment.

Lavelle: {A-Spades}{J-Hearts}
Hays: {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Le: {A-Clubs}{2-Clubs}

That's probably the biggest three-way chopped pot we've witnessed at the WSOP this year!
