The Defending Champ Surges


On our last pass by Table 11, we noticed that the defending champ, Elio Fox, had a lot more chips than he had when the day started. At the same time, a hand developed when Dominik Nitsche opened for 1,300 and Fox defended from the big blind.

The {A-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop saw Fox check-call a bet of 1,700 before checking the {5-Clubs} turn. Nitsche bet again, this time 1,700, but folded when Fox sprung to life with a check-raise to 4,800.

Fox is now sitting with over three times the chip average and is primed to make a deep run for the second year in a row.
