In the most dramatic all-in of the day, Ubaid Habib is out in 12th place and Jamie Rosen is the new chip leader in Event 67.
Habib opened to 90,000 and Muhammad Rahim called on the button. Rosen three-bet to 345,000 out of the big blind and Habib responded by moving all-in for 1,125,000. Rahim mucked and Rosen called right away with A♦A♠. Habib’s 5♥5♠ were in trouble but the Q♥5♣2♦ flop put him in the lead.
Rosen was shaking his head until the A♥ turn came to leave Habib doing a “surrender cobra.” Needing the case five, Habib did not hit and Rosen shipped the huge pot. He is the chip leader on the final table bubble with 3,500,000.
