Well, nevermind on that 'passing chips back and forth' thing.
In the last hand, Roger Hairabedian opened to 25,000, and Brian Powelll three-bet to 65,000. After a short pause Hairabedian moved all in, and Powell called off his last ~290,000 total to put himself at risk. The news was not good.
The flop drew a loud reaction from the French rail that had begun to fill in, and their man now had a commanding lead two cards from the semifinals. The turn gave Powell at least some hope, but he couldn't find the two-outer on the river.
So it's Hairabedian who's through to tomorrow's semifinal where he and Michael Mizrachi will play a deep heads-up match.
