Chip leader Farid Jattin (left) and Mike Laake

With a pile of chips already in the middle, chip leader Farid Jattin and Seminole Hard Rock Poker team member Mike Laake were heads up on a Qd7h5h9hKh board. Jattin was in the small blind and checked to Laake who took a few moments to map out his next move. He re-checked his hole cards and reluctantly checked back.

Jattin turned over 7c7d for a set of sevens and Laake’s cards went into the muck. Neither player had a heart, and Jattin’s set was best.

Farid Jattin – 3,000,000
Mike Laake – 1,350,000
