Event #57: The $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Last Hand Before Break

[user101598] • Level 13: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Right before the break, Phil Galfond led out for 175,000 on a flop of {j-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}, and his neighbor Tony Gregg raised to 415,000. Galfond called.

The turn was the {9-Hearts}, both players checked, and the {a-Spades} completed the board. Galfond led out for 545,000, and Gregg went deep into the tank. The 2013 One Drop High Roller winner cracked his knuckles and leaned forward in his chair, examining the board. He then turned his attention to his own stack, then looked blankly to the ceiling, murmuring several things under his breath.

He finally called, committing more than a quarter of his remaining stack, and Galfond turned over {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}.

Gregg mucked, then immediately exited the area for a break.

Here are counts from the entire table:

Chip Counts
Tom Hall gb 13,295,000 45,000
Brandon Steven us 7,955,000 1,055,000
Christoph Vogelsang de 6,250,000 640,000
