Hand #153: Elio Fox had the button. It folded to him, and he opened with a raise to win the blinds and antes.
Hand #154: Moritz Kranich had the button. When the table folded around to the blinds, Chris Moorman shoved in on Brian Roberts. No call.
Hand #155: Chris Moorman had the button, and he used it to raise to 175,000 and win this pot too.
Hand #156: Brian Roberts had the button, and we... well, we missed what happend. Raise-and-take, but we couldn't tell who. Apologies.
Hand #157: Elio Fox had the button, and he raised to 160,000. From the big blind, Chris Moorman reraised to 450,000, and Fox slid the call into the pot. The flop came , and Moorman followed up his raise with a bet of 475,000. Four plaques and three red chips. Fox called, very deliberately. The turned, and Moorman checked now. Check-check, and the hit the river, drawing another check from Moorman. Fox took his cue to stab at the pot with 750,000, and Moorman gave it just a cursory look before surrendering.
Hand #158: Moritz Kranich had the button. For the second consecutive orbit, Moorman shoved in when it folded to his small blind. Brian Roberts quickly folded what he said was deuce-three the last time, but this time, he spent a while considering with a half-grin on his face. After about a minute, he made the call for his tournament life. The amount was never announced, but it looked like he had about 800,000 left in front of him when he committed. Cards up, gents:
Roberts found his card on the flop as the dealer spread out to pull him into the lead with two to come. Moorman had one overcard and the gutshot to try and chase down, but the turn was a blank. The river, however, would not be a blank. There was a moment's pause as the cameras caught the emotions of both players, and they were fixed firmly on Roberts as the river ended his day.
Moorman catches his straight on the river, and he's sent Roberts off in fourth place. That's worth a cool €400,000, and it seems to be of some consolation as he conducts some talkative and rather jolly interviews with the production crew behind us.
