Aaron Olshan, Day 2 Level 18

Aaron Olshan is sandwiched between two of the chip-leaders, Richard Pelberg and Jim Lillis. He just decided to get into a pot with both of them and ended up getting a full double. The players were on the flop with ~60k in the middle and a board of 10♥9♣7♣. Pelberg and Olshan checked to Lillis who fired a bet of 38k. Pelberg then raised to 100k before finding that Olshan was still interested in the pot. Olshan moved all-in for 275k total getting Lillis out before Pelberg immediately called.

Olshan 10♣10♦ vs Pelberg 9♦9♠ Pot: ~670k

Turn: 7♥ River: 8♠

Olshan holds against the one-outer and takes a big chunk of Pelberg’s stack. Olshan more or less replaces him at the top of the leader-board and is now sitting with ~80 big blinds.
