First in from the cutoff seat, Marcin Horecki opened to 1,500, and Chris Moorman three-bet to 3,400 next door on the button. When the blinds folded, Horecki reraised to 8,525, and Moorman came right back with a five-bet to 15,000 total in the form of three blue T5,000 chips. Horecki took pause, then shoved in, and Moorman sunk in his chair. He hated the call as he made it, but Horecki hated the call even worse. It was Moorman at risk for 51,950, and the cards were on their backs.
Moorman choked back a big gulp as he saw that he was ahead but not by much. The gulp turned to a big frown when the flop brought , and Moorman made a motion to stand up as the blank turned. The river was his life-saver, though, and the dropped off the deck to lock up his double. Now the frown turned into a big sigh of relief, then a smirk, and the Brit has moved his stack over the century mark.
Horecki, on the other hand, is left with just about 11,000 after going to war with the suited connectors.
