Perilously short on 430k at the break, Simon Appleby got it in first hand back and he was short enough for Barry McMahon to take him on with trash.
Appleby: As 6h
McMahon: 3d 7h
Board: Qs 3c Js Th 7d
The trash hit, twice, and Appleby headed to the rail with €8,380 and handshakes all round.
McMahon now has a slight chip lead over Simon Nickmans; they’re technically heads up but discussing a deal right now instead of playing cards…
