Hand #11- Nam Le made it 60,000 to go, and Martin Hanowski called from the small blind. Michael Rocco also called from the big blind. The flop came , and Hanowski fired out 72,000. Both players folded, and Hanowski won the pot.
Hand #12- Phillippe Vert made it 65,000 to go from early position, and it folded around to Hanowski, who repopped it to 135,000. Vert made the call, and the flop came . Vert checked over to Hanowski, who fired out 125,000. Vert tanked for about a minute before tossing out a check raise to 250,000. Hanowski made the call, and there was already over 600,000 in the middle when the hit the turn.
Vert thought it over for another minute or so before firing out 325,000. Hanowski tanked for about 45 seconds, then in a flash, he moved all in, and Vert snap called.
Vert had flopped a set of sixes, and he was well out in front of Hanowski's pocket aces. Hanowski was looking for an ace and an ace only on the river, and....well.....
For the second time today, a two outer ace came on the river to decide a huge pot, as Hanowski came from behind to knock Vert out in 9th place. The mother ship was full of groans as a shell shocked Vert made his way out of the stadium, leaving Hanowski with a mountain of new chips, that all in all looked to be 2.1 million.
