Event #62: The $1,111 Little One for One Drop

Lapossie Over a Million

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Matthew Lapossie

The action started with Hungarian national Arpad Balazs opening to 15,000 and Xiao Peng made it 50,000 to go. It was folded over to Matthew Lapossie who made it 115,000. Balazs moved all in, having both players covered with over 700,000 in chips. Peng quickly folded and Lapossie couldn't get his chips into the middle fast enough as he proudly turned over the pre-flop nuts with {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}. It was a cooler for Balazs as he had {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}.

The board would run out {J-Clubs}{8-Spades}{3-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and the ace high flush for Lapossie was enough to give him the massive pot which moved him over the million chip mark. Balazs will have work to do but still has chips with 240,000 left after that blow.
