Rami And Marsel Trading Blows

Event 1 (Day 2)
Level 27 (20,000/40,000/5,000)
Total Entries: 332
Players Remaining: 5
Chip Average: 1,300,000
Rami Jradeh has had an up and down Level 27, but is now sitting as the chip leader of Event 1 with just under a third of the total chips in play. 
After flying under the radar for the first half of this Final Table, Rami Jradeh has come alive here in Level 27, playing three massive pots in a row, locking with two Marsel Backa in two of them.

The first hand was picked up late, with Rami checking to Marsel on a board of [Qc][6h][Jd][Ah][8h].

Marsel would cut out a bet of 410,000 and Rami would call, risking more than half his stack in the process.

Those chips would be headed Marsel's way as he tabled [Ad][Jc] for a winning two pair.

Rami would be cut down to less than 20 big blinds, but then find a double up through Brad St. Vincent a few hands later.

He'd be back to about where he started his Level 27 adventure and it would get better for him as this time he would be doubling through Marsel as he check raised on a board of [Jd][4c][10s] and then called a four-bet shove from Marsel with middle pair, [Qc][10d] to win a 1,800,000 chip pot as Marsel held [Kc][9s].

Marsel would say, "I knew he had a ten, I was just trying to get him off it."

Rami's call might have been because Marsel's been very "loose" at this Final Table and while he got paid off when he had "it" against Ryan Eriquezzo, when he doesn't he opens himself up to taking some big hits, just like he did in that last hand.

Rami is now sitting with close to 2,000,000 chips and Marsel has been knocked down slightly, playing just over 1,800,000.
