Last Hand of the Night

In the last hand of the night, Joe Ebanks raised to 200,000 on the button and Chris Moorman called from the big blind. Both players checked through the {8-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{9-Hearts} flop and {Q-Hearts} turn, leading to the {10-Clubs} on the river. Moorman checked, Ebanks bet 250,000, and the Brit laid his hand down.

The players are currently bagging and tagging their chips, which means will have official counts soon.
