From the cutoff, Charlie Carrel came in with a raise to 65,000. Steve O'Dwyer three-bet on the button to 195,000, and Carrel called to see a flop.
The flop was and Carrel checked. O'Dwyer continued his agression with a bet of 295,000. Carrel didn't waste too much time before check-raising all in, which was effectively for O'Dwyer's total stack of 900,000. It took O'Dwyer merely one second to come to a decision.
Just like that, a pot of over two million chips was created.
Carrel was a slight favorite to win the hand, needing to hit an ace, queen or diamond. The on the turn instantly decided it: Carrel made his flush, leaving O'Dwyer drawing dead.
The title defense of O'Dwyer came to an end in 10th place, cashing €20,400.
