Championship: Hass Doubles Through Fariab

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 8K/16K/2K ante

In one of the biggest hands of the tournament, it was three-way action to the Ah8s7d flop before they checked it around. David Hass led out for 35,000 after the 9s turn and Iraj Fariab raised to 125,000. Cliff Gladston let his hand go and Hass three-bet shoved for 422,000.

Fariab took a few seconds before calling with an open-ended straight draw 6c6h but was drawing dead when Hass tabled JdTc. The river was the pointless Th to move Hass up among the leaders.
