Steve O'Dwyer has just retaken the chip lead after eliminating Andrea Darduin.
O'Dwyer raises to 1,100 in early position and there is a cold-caller before Andrea Darduin raises to 3,600 from the hijack. O'Dwyer peers around the side of the dealer's head to take a shot at Darduin's stack but it is difficult to see - Darduin is a mountain of a man! In the end O'Dwyer calls and the third player in the hand folds.
Flop: 8 6 2
O'Dwyer checks to Darduin who is sat like a piece of granite with a cigarette dripping from his mouth and he bets 30,000. O'Dwyer tries to have another glance at the Darduin stack and this time he moves a complimentary arm and O'Dwyer can see that he has around 10,000 behind.
"I am all-in," says O'Dwyer.
Darduin calls instantly and O'Dwyer turns over J J and he is ahead of Darduin and his 9 9. The turn 6 and river T brick off for Darduin and he can now light up that fag.
O'Dwyer meanwhile moves into the top spot with 130,000 chips.
