Huff Back to the Top
Damon Huff was the first player to 100,000 chips, saw the lead slip away and his chips go down to 60k, but he's climbed back steadily and just took down a monster pot to regain the lead.
Huff flopped middle set and a shortstacked player moved all in on the flop before Huff could act. He paused, went Hollywood for a bit, then just called the all-in. Angel Howell then went over-the-top for about 50,000 and Huff snap-called.
Howell had a nut flush draw, and the shortstacked player was drawing dead, having moved in on a bluff that went bad.
The turn and river blanked for Howell and Huff raked in the biggest pot so far in the tournament.
Damon Huff - 242,000.
Level - 12
Blinds - 800/1600
