Darian Tan was the initial raiser and Mike Watson defended his small blind. Until the river, there were about 25,000 chips in the middle and Watson moved all in.
Tan checked his stack several times and eventually called all in for 23,100. Watson flipped over and Tan checked twice before letting out a huge sigh of relief. His was good enough to win the pot and avoid elimination just shy of the money.
We caught the action on the turn with David Bowen as preflop aggressor from the cutoff and Mikel Haab in the small blind. Haab checked the turn and Bowen grabbed some chips. Haab said that he was gonna call every bet that Bowen will make even though his opponent didn't have put his chips over the line and just shuffled some.
Floor was called as Bowen wanted to know if there was any ruling on it and play then carried on as normal. Bowen bet 5,000 and Haab called immediately. On the river, Bowen moved all in within a matter of seconds and Haab asked "Can I swear at him?" to which the floor shook his head. "Can I smash him?" he continued while laughing and the table cracked up. "Ok, I fold." Haab then said and Bowen quietly mucked his cards.
Mike Watson opened to 1,600 and Josh Barrett three-bet to 4,300 from the button. Watson responded by making it 9,600 only to have Barrett move all in for over 70,000. Watson called for his 41,400 and the cards were tabled.
The board ran out and Watson doubled through to roughly 85,000 as Barrett slipped to 36,000 in chips.
Daniel Neilson opened and Tien Phan three-bet to 4,000 before Neilson four-bet to 9,700. Pham responded by making it 19,700 only to have Neilson move all in for 88,000. Pham went deep into the tank - with time eventually being called - and with just a few second remaining, he called all in for his remaining 16,000.
The board ran out and Phan hit the rail as Neilson soared to 130,000 in chips.
Josh Barrett raised from under the gun and Julius Colman moved all in for around 8,000 in chips. Barrett called with and turned the nut straight versus on a board of .
The seat of Colman wasn't cold yet when Andrew Smith sat down and picked up in his very first hand. One seat over, Paul Birman was unfortunate enough to find as short stack and wished all opponents "good luck guys" after the turn. He was already drawing dead and the board ran out .
