Ubaid Habib flipped the switch on Bob Bounahra and chipped up to over 1,000,000 as a result.

Only a few minutes into the start of Day 3, we are seeing some major hands play out that are taking plenty of time off the tournament clock. Ubaid Habib and Bob Bounahra just tangled in a pot that saw the latter get the clock called on him before folding.

Thiago Macedo opened the hijack and Habib flatted the button. Bounahra called out of the big blind and the flop came out KJ8♣. Action checked to Habib and he bet 40,000. Bounahra then check-raised to 118,000 and Macedo got out of the way.

Habib called after a minute and the 7 came on the turn. Bounahra checked and Habib came out firing with 226,000. Bounahra tanked for three minutes before a player called the clock on him. As time winded down, Bounahra muck and gave up the pot. Habib climbs over 1,000,000 with the hand and Bounahra takes a hit back to 840,000.
