Switch Goes the Chiplead


There's already a bet of 700,000 from chipleader James Starr on a board of Kc Kc Kc Kc, and 1,600,000 in the pot.  Michael Loncar (above) moves all-in for 1,435,000 total. Starr confirms the count of Loncar's chips by the dealer, and makes the call, having about 3,400,000 behind after the call.

Loncar turns over 7/7 for a turned set and he's in a race as Starr has Kc Kc for a flopped second pair and a turned flush draw.

The river is Kc and Loncar's celebratory chant echoes through the room.
