Steve O’Dwyer just won a pot of over 3,200,000 vs. Alex Whitenstall (who was, until now, lying second in chips overall). Caught from the turn with the board standing 2d Th 5d Qd, Whitenstall checked to button O’Dwyer, who bet 440,000 with a million behind. Whitenstall made the call.
The river paired the board with the 2c. Whitenstall checked again. O’Dwyer did the Blain thing we just saw (moving all in apart from a single smallest-denomination chip which he used as a temporary card protector) and Whitenstall called with little delay.
Whitenstall: Td Jd
O’Dwyer: Kd 4d
