Nex into the Chip Lead

Michel Leibgorin limped under the gun with :::6c:::8c and called a raise to 250,000 from Vladimir Nex in the small blind with :::kd:::qc.

The flop came :::8h:::6s:::9s and Nex continued for 240,000. Leibgorin called with his two pair.

The turn was the :::qs giving Nex a pair of his own. He bet again for 360,000 and Leibgorin snap-called.

The pair checked the :::qh river and Nex won with trip queens in the last hand before the break.
