13 long hours after play began, we have ourselves a final table. Michael Dix, who had miserable deck coop. during the last few levels of play, was eliminated on the bubble by Simon Morris. Here's how the final hand went down:
David Steicke limped into the pot from early position and the action folded around the table to Morris who raised. Jan Suchanek made the call from late position and when the action reached Dix in the blinds, he moved all in for his last 5,300. Steicke made the call as well and we had a three-way sidepot with Dix all in heading into the flop:
Steicke was first to act and checked. Morris fired a bet that prompted Suchanek to fold, but Steicke stuck around to see the turn -- .
On 4th Street, Steicke checked, Morris bet, and Steicke called one more bet, taking the hand to the river -- .
Steicke check-folded to another Morris bet, and at the showdown, Morris quickly tabled a pocket pair of aces.
Dix, who hadn't looked at his cards before shoving all in, turned over the first and then squeezed the making two pair, but to no avail. Morris raked in the pot, climbing to 112,000 in chips to end the day.
Jan Suchanek opened with a raise from the hijack position and was called by both Josh Wilson (button) and David Steicke (big blind).
The flop came down and Steicke checked, Suchanek bet, Wilson called and Steicke (surprisingly) folded.
The turn brought the and Suchanek checked to Wilson who bet. Suchanek then check-raised and Wilson tank-called.
The river brought the and Suchanek fired a quick bet, sending Wilson back into the tank. After some serious deliberation and a pump-fake fold, Wilson eventually sent his cards face down into the muck pile, surrendering the hand to Suchanek.
"You can pick one," Suchanek offered Wilson, who took him up on the offer, turning over the .
After the hand, Suchanek stacked up just under 80,000 in chips while Wilson fell to 45,700.
