Matthew Pearson opened with a raise to 45,000 on the button before Joseph Cheong made it 138,000 from the small blind. Nicolas Babel was sitting in the big blind and he decided to shove alll in over the top for 735,000. Pearson called off his last 560,000 as Cheong got out of the way.
Pearson had run "Big Slick" into the rockets of Babel and received no miracles ont he . The last Australian hope departs as Babel is now up to 1.42 million chips.
