Galen Hall Wins Monster Pot to Move Into Chip Lead

We get to the table with approximately 50,000 already in the pot on a flop of {9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs} and Galen Hall placed a bet of 36,000 in front of him. Fabrice Soulier, in an almost inaudible whisper to the dealer, said, "I bet the pot." Hall instantly moved all in and Soulier, committed, made the call. The hands were turned over and Hall was in the lead:

Hall: {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} for a pair of aces
Soulier: {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades} for a pair of nines

The turn was the {7-Hearts}, giving Soulier outs to an eight for a straight. Any queen, jack, ten, nine, or eight would give Soulier the knock out. The river allowed Hall to breathe a sigh of relief as it was the {K-Spades}, and after counting down his stack, it was determined that Soulier would send 166,000 over to Hall. This knocked Soulier down to 81,000 and chipped Hall up to 380,000 and the chip lead.
