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 . Hockin had taken the lead, and the turn sealed it when the peeled off. The river was the 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 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!
