Chip Leader Mike Amato Knocks Out Tony Lay

Mike Amato, with a mass of chips sitting in front of him, opens to 23,000 from middle position. Next to act is Tony Lay, directly to Amato's left. Lay puts in a three-bet shove for around 180,000. Action folds back to Amato, who calls.

Lay turns up   . Amato tables    and it is a coin flip going into the flop.

The flop comes    . Lay improves to top pair, but Amato hits a dagger set of jacks.

The turn is the  , and the river is the  , sealing Lay's fate. Amato adds another chunk to his enormous stack. He undoubtedly holds the outright chip lead.

Mike Amato - 1,720,000 (172 bb)
Tony Lay - Eliminated
