Hand #79: In one of the biggest pots of the tournament Barny Boatman just doubled up through, till that moment commanding, chip leader Brian O'Donoghue.

Barny Boatman limped in from the small blind but the action would soon explode. Brian O'Donoghue in the big blind made it 150,000 and then it began: Boatman made it 375,000 and O'Donoghue bumped it up to 700,000. Now Boatman made the call and the flop appeared: {5-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}.

Boatman bet out 400,000 and O'Donoghue raised (again), now to 800,000. Boatman pushed all in for 2.1 million and O'Donoghue made the call. Boatman showed his flopped set with {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} and O'Donoghue frustratedly tabled his {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}. O'Donoghue needed a king but wouldn't get it: {9-Hearts} on the turn and {9-Spades} on the river. Barny Boatman is now the big stack three handed.
