We caught the action on a flop when Christopher Brammer checked from the big blind to Timothy Adams. Adams was in middle position and bet 9,300. Sergii Baranov, the tournament chip leader, raised to 21,000 from the cutoff.
The action was back on Brammer who decided to three-bet to 50,000.
"Crazy hand," Daniel Negreanu said to us as we watched Adams contemplate his move. Negreanu said Adams had raised pre flop and both Baranov and Brammer called. Adams finally kicked it in leaving Baranov with a decision.
"How much you have?" Baranov asked.
"I started the hand with around 250,000," Brammer replied.
"All in!" the Ukrainian announced quickly.
"Only?" Brammer said with a look of disgust on his face.
"No. I said all in!" Baranov said, after which Brammer got the message and quickly folded.
"Why not?" Baranov smiled at Brammer who seemed annoyed.
"Because I had nine-high!" Brammer sighed.
Brammer thought that Baranov said "Only" in a mocking matter when the Brit announced what his stack was. When it was cleared up that Baranov indeed said "all in" Brammer cooled down. Baranov seems to be in full control of Table 9, as he's miles ahead of the rest.
