Patrick Clarke pushed from the small blind with Ac 2h but fellow shortstack and other former champion Dan Wilson didn’t fancy it with Js 4h in the big blind.
Next hand though, Clarke moved in for 2 million over a 260k raise from Steve O’Dwyer, and a snap-call later they were on their backs.
Clarke: Ah Jd
O’Dwyer: Kh Kd
Board: Jc 6c Kc 4h 5c
With that, our chances of crowning a two-time winner have halved.
