Dorneles Neto Wins Wild Hand For Chip Lead

• Lygis 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Joao Dorneles Neto

We missed the preflop action, but we saw that Joao Dorneles Neto and Asher Conniff got into a huge all in confrontation preflop that saw a pot of about 350,000 build up before the flop. Conniff was all in with {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}, and he was in rough shape, as Dorneles Neto held {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. The flop came down {8-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, giving Conniff top pair and the lead. Dorneles Neto led out a huge sigh, and couldn't help but hide his disappointment. However, that changed to jubilation when the {a-Hearts} hit the turn, causing Dorneles Neto to yell out "yes" and pump his arms in the air. The hand wasn't over, as Conniff could still catch a miracle two outer on the river, but he didn't do that, as the {2-Hearts} came.

After stacking up his new chips, we pegged Dorneles Neto's stack to be a chip leading 710,000.
