Leader Lenaghan was involved in one of the more interesting plays and the largest pot of the tournament.
He opened the pot to 110,000 with the blinds at 25,000/50,000 and a 5,000 ante. Brian Follain took the bait and raised to 355,000. The two took turns raising the stakes until Lenaghan was all-in.
Follain than when into deep deliberation, and after five minutes of nervous pacing and contemplation, he called. Lenaghan turned over pocket jacks and Follian an A-Q, and that meant 8 million in chips resided on the flip. Lenaghan had the luck on this one. Lenaghan:
I definitely wasn't trying to flip for that many chips. It was just a spot that I thought he could have a lot of hands and try to make a play on me because of our history. I just went with it and worked out well. I got lucky, I guess, a little bit.
And with that luck Lenaghan is soaring towards the final table. he just needs to hope he has at least a little luck left.
