Event #18: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Hays Claims Back the Lead

In the final hand before the break, Foster Hays has taken back the chip lead against Casey Kelton.

Kelton raised to 425,000 from the button and Hays called before both players checked the flop of {A-Hearts}{3-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. Hays then led out for 550,000 after the turn of the {5-Diamonds}, but Kelton raised to 1.2 million. Hays called, then he checked his option on the river of the {2-Diamonds}.

Kelton fired out another bet of 1.2 million and Hays called. "Nice call," said Kelton, throwing his hand into the muck after Hays tabled {Q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}.
