Makhija Wins Monster, Takes Chip Lead

Amit Makhija takes the chip lead

Jordan Batt opened to 125,000 from early position, Amit Makhija called in the cutoff, and A.J. Jejelowo three-bet to 425,000 from the big blind. Batt folded, and Makhija examined Jejelowo's stack before calling.

The flop fell {9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{3-Clubs}, and Jejelowo led for 600,000. Makhija cut out enough green T25,000 chips to call, riffled them, then slid them forward.

The turn was the {9-Spades}, and Jejelowo slowed down, checking to Makhija. Makhija reached for chips, and slid out 500,000. Within thirty seconds, Jejelowo moved all in for effectively 2.045 million, and Makhija looked at his cards one more time before calling.

Makhija: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Jejelowo: {a-Clubs}{7-Spades}

"Does he have a flush draw?" Michael Shelton shouted from the rail.

Jejelowo didn't have a flush draw - he was only drawing to the three remaining aces in the deck. The river was not an ace, it was the {7-Clubs}, doubling Makhija to 6.265 million chips, and giving him the chip lead.

Jejelowo is knocked all the way down to 750,000.

"That was a big one," Makhija said to the cameras after the hand.
