PPC Main Event (Day 2): Hager Doubles Into The Chip Lead

Level 33 (150,000/300,000/50,000)
Total Entrants: 511

Players Remaining: 2
Average Stack: 9,140,000


Michael Hager is now leading heads up in his match against Joe Palma.

Joe Palma started heads up play against Michael Hager with a sizable chip lead but the roles have been flip-flopped and it is now Palma on the short end of things.

The first double for Hager was a bad beat of the worst kind as Hager’s KQ ran down the K♠Q of Palma. Hager was all-in for 3,300,000 and received the generous run out of Q♣3329 to leave Palma spinning in his tracks.

A few hands later, on a board of A94♣7♠4, Hager bet 2,000,000 into a pot of 1,500,000. Palma responded with a shove all-in for Hager’s last 4,000,000 and he called with 99♠ for a full house. Palma was in disbelief as he flashed the 4♠ and shipped the double.

Palma is currently playing 7,200,000 and Hager is leading with 11,000,000. With only 60 blinds left in play, we can expect to see many more all-ins in the immediate future.
