Matt Wakeman, already sitting on a mountain of chips, opened the action with a raise to 12,000 and a short-stacked Laurence Hall moved all-in over the top for roughly 45,000.
With chips to spare Wakeman did not take long to make the call and the cards were turned over.
The flop was a good one for Hall, giving him an open-ended straight draw to go with his two overs and the turn put him in front.
However, Hall’s lead would be short lived and Wakeman spiked a set of fours when the hit the river. A disappointed Hall headed for the rail while Wakeman added an extra wing to his towering chip castle to climb to 950000 and take the chip lead. Just 82 players now remain.
