Ashley Warner Eliminated in 2nd Place (A$123,000)

Ashley Warner

And it's all over! After Paul Hockin managed to double up into a playable stack it seemed to become a long battle, but it couldn't have been any different. A few hands after doubling up they went at it again, and Hockin crippled his opponent.

Ashley Warner raised up to 125,000 from the button, after which Hockin three-bet to 260,000. Warner put in a four-bet to 525,000 and Hockin moved all in. The chip leader quickly called, and a pot worth around 6,000,000 chips was created!

All Warner had to do was dodge Hockin's out, but the flopped spelled disaster right away as it rolled out {10-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts}. Hockin had taken the lead, and the turn sealed it when the {10-Clubs} peeled off. The river was the {6-Diamonds} and Hockin doubled into a 10:1 chip lead. Two hands later Warner was all in for his final 550,000 chips and Hockin made the call.

The board ran out {8-Clubs}{7-Spades}{3-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and Warner was eliminated in second place! The runner-up finisher had a big chip leader when the deal was made, and he will have the biggest payday taking home A$130,000. But Hockin is the new champion, and he will add have a pretty trophy to show for!
