We picked up the action on the {9-Spades} {3-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} flop, where Moon led into Benyamine with a bet. Benyamine raised; Moon re-raised an additional 200,000 above Benyamine's raise. That put the action back to Benyamine, who put in another raise of an additional 300,000 chips. Finally Moon just called.

The turn was the {4-Hearts}. Benyamine had 800,000 chips behind. Moon elected to put him all in. Benyamine called with the best starting hand {A-Hearts} {A-?} but he had been out-flopped by Moon's {3-Spades} {3-Diamonds}, a set of treys. The river bricked {Q-Clubs} to end Benyamine's run.

Moon is the new chip leader with roughly 5.7 million chips.
Meh, whilst Benyamine is a billion times better than I'll ever be, the flat call on the flop just screams of a huge hand, surely?

Joe Hachem Eliminated

First into the pot, Joe Hachem moved all in for his last 117,000 little chips. The bet came around the table to Billy Kopp, and he messily flicked in the calling chips. Nobody else wanted any action, and it was heads up for Hachem's tournament life.

Showdown
Hachem: {J-Clubs} {9-Clubs}
Kopp: {4-Clubs} {4-Spades}

The flop was a beautiful miss for Hachem as it rolled out {K-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {7-Spades}. A buzz of murmurs swept through the featured table arena as the realization kicked in that Hachem was live to any club, any king, or either of his own overcards. The turn was the {A-Hearts} which was a relative blank, but it did add another two outs for the at-risk World Champ. The crowd once again rose to life as the entire room seemed to be pulling for an out card to hit.

River: {3-Hearts}. Talk about a swing and a miss. Kopp's little pair of fours somehow held up to make the winning two pair. With that, the gregarious Joe Hachem shook hands with his table, wished them all luck, and made his way off to the interview booth.
I didn't think Hachem can miss 18 outers but I don't mind at all.

He made a very deep run in the 2000 ME but suffered a crippling bad beat from Chris Ferguson when they were down to ~12 iirc.

Better question is how the **** is it messy making french fries? You just have to cut up a potato.

Silly bitch.

Here Comes Ivey

From middle position, Bob Whalen stuck in a raise to 75,000. Alex Jalali made the call in position, and Phil Ivey elected to re-raise from the small blind. After cutting out a stack of chips, Ivey instead moved all in for his entire stack of about 1.8 million. Whalen called all in for 699,000, and that was enough to get Jalali out of the way and put Whalen heads up with Ivey for his tournament life.

Showdown
Whalen: {A-Hearts} {K-Diamonds}
Ivey: {K-Spades} {K-Clubs}

Things weren't looking good for Whalen, and they wouldn't get any better. The board ran down {J-Clubs} {5-Spades} {4-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds} {J-Spades}, holding Ivey's overpair and sending Whalen off with about 100 players left. After raking in that pot, Ivey has worked his stack up to a very dangerous 2,680,000.

Look out, Main Event.
The pot was huge. God be blessed he won it.
