Chip Leader Safai Loses Some

We caught up with the action on an {A-Hearts}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop where an early position player bet 600 and chip leader Bob Safai raised to 2,200 on the button. The original bettor made the call and then check-called a bet of 5,000 from Safai on the {2-Clubs} turn. When the {4-Clubs} hit the river, the player checked again and Safai quickly slid out a bet of 21,000. The player thought for a little bit before he called for what was most of his stack.

Safai turned over {A-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for two pair, aces and fours, but his opponent revealed {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for top-two to nearly double up. Safai rapidly counted out what he had left and then jokingly hid his stack when we were trying to take a look before he lifted his hands so we could peek. Although he still has the biggest stack among the notables we’ve tracked, Safai has certainly taken a hit from his peak.
