Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Shawn Buchanan

Shawn Buchanan is currently lying in fifth place with 1,460,000 chips. Buchanan, who has had a fantastic WSOPE in Cannes, is recognised by his peers as being one of the very best. All he needs now is a 1st place to add to his resume. Will this be Buchanan time?

Amir Lehavot raised to 35,000 in the hijack seat and Buchanan cold-called in the cut-off. The flop was {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts} {J-Clubs} and Lehavot check-called a 39,000 Buchanan bet. The turn was the {4-Spades} and both players checked before we had the {K-Spades} on the river. Lehavot checked and a 200,000 Buchanan bet took down the pot.
