Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Dance Into the Light

• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Phil Collins - chip daddy

We've got a new chip leader, and his name is Phil "USCphildo" Collins.

The pot began with Collins opening to 35,000, and Wilfried Haerig three-bet to 80,000 straight. Collins called, and off they went. The flop brought {9-Clubs} {5-Clubs} {A-Diamonds}, and both men checked through to see the {K-Clubs} on fourth street. Collins checked again, and Haerig took his cue to bet 75,000 before facing a check-raise to 225,000. He flatted, and Collins bet 465,000 on the {10-Spades} river. After taking pause, Haerig moved all in for just about a million total, and Collins snap-called to put one of the biggest pots we've seen up for grabs.

Collins: {A-Clubs} {8-Clubs}
Haerig: {Q-Clubs} {J-Clubs}

It was the nuts versus the second-nuts, and Collins was on the good end. He's earned the knockout, and with it comes the chip lead in the Main Event. He's got about 3.6 million as best as we can tell, good enough for the top spot overall.
