The action on the preliminary final table started slowly with a series of raises and folds. Then Dave Shallow raises to 50,000 and Robert Bruil moves all-in for 285,000 causing Shallow to fold. Then we had our first casualty…
The action folds around to Stuart Fox on the button and he moves all-in for 306,000. Robert Bruil tank-folds in the small blind but Super Sexy Steve Watts calls in the big blind. Watts calmly turns over A K and Fox has the inferior A T.
The dealer deals out three cards and right smack in the window is the T. Watts veers away from the table in disgust while Fox remains motionless in his seat. The rest of the flop unfolds and we see T 5 5. The turn is the J but the river restores balance in the pokerverse when it comes down K.
Watts flexes his incredible biceps and shakes the hand of Fox who gets a consolatory round of applause for his 9th place finish.
Watts ~ 900,000
