Moorman and The Fox Both Bite Chunks Out Of Roberts

• Nivel 28: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #148: Brian Roberts had the button. Chris Moorman raised to 175,000 from the cutoff and Elio Fox three-bet to 450,000 from the small blind. Moritz Kranich moved out of the way in the big blind and the decision fell back to Moorman. Moorman moved all-in and Fox quickly folded.

Hand #149: Elio Fox owned the button, but it was Brian Roberts who raised to 160,000 in the cutoff. Fox stared at Roberts as if to say, "that was my move," before three-betting to 375,000. Moritz Kranich was in the small blind and he four-bet to 775,000! Moorman quickly folded and the action fell back on to Roberts who also folded. Fox moved all-in, and after four-betting a big proportion of his stack, Kranich folded.

Hand #150: Moritz Kranich had the button but folded to let the blinds bang it up. Chris Moorman raised out of the small blind and Brian Roberts called in the big blind. The flop was {K-Clubs} {8-Hearts} {7-Clubs} and both players checked. The turn was the {5-Spades} and Moorman decided it was his turn to make a move when he bet 250,000 and Roberts folded.

Hand #151: Chris Moorman had the button but it was a blind battle that ensued. Brian Roberts made up the loose change and Elio Fox raised the stakes when he made it 270,000 more to play. Roberts pulled back his initial bet and replaced it with a re-raise of 715,000. You could almost see the cogs whirring inside of the head of Fox trying to figure it all out. Fox then re-raised to a whopping 1,430,000 and Roberts folded instantly.

Hand #152: Brian Roberts had the button. Chris Moorman was first to act and he raised to 175,000 and Brian Roberts cold-called. The two of them saw a flop containing a full set of diamonds {8-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds}. Moorman checked and Roberts bet 245,000. Action back to the man from the UK and he check-raised to 605,000, Roberts took a quick peek of his cards before making the call. The turn card was the {4-Diamonds} and this time Moorman was in no mood for checking, as he bet 675,000. It was time to have a diamond underneath your cards and Roberts increased the likelihood that he had one when he made the call. The final card in this monumental pot was the {A-Spades} and Moorman moved all in and Roberts immediately asked for a count. The dealer did his job and the confirmed word was 1,915,000 and Roberts went through the whole gamut of emotions before calling; Moorman winning the huge pot with the biggest diamond of them all. The unlucky Roberts had flopped the second nut flush!
