In a battle between two members of the WPT Champions Club who also happen to be good friends, Niall Farrell raises from the hijack to 9,000, Chris Moorman reraises from the cutoff to 25,000, and Farrell four-bets it to 59,000. Moorman calls.

The flop comes Spade KDiamond JDiamond 3, Farrell bets 52,000, and Moorman thinks for a while before he calls.

The turn card is the Club Q, Farrell checks, Moorman bets 50,000, and Farrell tanks for more than a minute before he calls.

The river card is the Club 2, Farrell checks, and Moorman thinks for a while before he moves all in for about 130,000. Farrell snap-calls with Diamond AClub 10 for the nuts — an ace-high straight. Forced to show his hand because it’s an all-in situation, Moorman turns over Heart 10Diamond 10.

Farrell wins the pot to eliminate Moorman, leaving 72 players left in the tournament. As soon as Moorman leaves, this is the table that breaks.

Niall Farrell  –  683,000  (171 bb)
Chris Moorman  –  Eliminated
