• Taso 26: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Phillip Vert

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 {9-Spades}{10-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}, 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 {9-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. 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 {5-Clubs} 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: {6-Clubs}{6-Spades}
Hanowski: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}

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.....

River: {a-Hearts}

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.
