Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

The Biggest Hand of The Tournament So Far: Moorman v Rijkenberg

When you are playing 2,500/5,000 blinds you do not expect a 600,000 stack and a 400,000 stack to be involved in the bubble, but amazingly we did and this is how the hand went down.

Chris Moorman raised to 12,000 in the hijack seat and Constant Rijkenberg three-bet to 31,000 from the big blind. The flop was {J-Spades} {4-Spades} {4-Diamonds} and Rijkenberg went straight at Moorman with a 25,000 bet. All eyes averted to Moorman and he raised to 56,000 and Rijkenberg called immediately. When the dealer placed the {5-Diamonds} on the felt Rijkenberg checked and Moorman bet 114,000. By this time the media started to realise that this was getting serious. Rijkenberg knew it was and he made the call. The last card to be snapped on to the table was the {9-Hearts}. Rijkenberg once again checked and Moorman moved all of his chips across the line (229,000).

The media invaded the table and all you could hear was the sound of clicking cameras. Rijkenberg counted out the bet and looked at what the potential damage could be (he would have been left with 190k) and then he made the call. Moorman turned over {Q-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds} with the confidence of a man at the very top of his game and Rijkenberg looked sick, before quietly sliding his cards, face down, to the dealer.
