With the action folding round to Preetinder Bhayana in the small blind, he made it 17,500 to go and David Paananen defended his big blind.
The flop fell down
and Bhayana slid out a bet amounting to 25,500. Paananen sat there for a little before re-raising to 77,000 total as the rail begin to close in on the table.
Bhayana sat there riffling ten yellow 5,000-denomination chips as Tournament Director Danny McDonagh came over to announce the action to the remaining players and onlookers.
Another two minutes went by before Bhayana announced all in.
"You go all in? I call" announced Paananen as he flipped his
for a flopped bottom set of treys.
Bhayana shook his head, stood up, and sheepishly rolled over his
for just Ace-high but also a backdoor straight and flush-draw.
"Two of clubs would be a great sweat card" commented one of the twenty or so players that had totally surrounded the table.
The dealer burned and turned a black two on the turn, but it would be the
to see Paananen needing to fade one of the four remaining fours in the deck to stay alive.
As the rail pressed even harder against the backs of the table eight chairs, the
would land on the river to the screams and sighs of the remaining 48 players.
Paananen stood there in shock before making his way to the exit, but not before launching a half-drunk water bottle at an unsuspecting camera girl.
Bhayana on the other hand could barely keep a smile off his face as he raked in a huge place to soar to 498,000 in chips.
