Eoghan O'Dea opened to 1.1 million from middle position, and the action folded to John Hewitt who moved all in for his last 3.875 million in the big blind. O'Dea quickly called, and we were off to the races!
O'Dea did not connect directly with the flop, but it gave him an open-ended straight draw to go along with his two over-cards. It was all over when the turned, giving O'Dea Broadway, and the entire mothership erupted. The dealer quickly dealt the on the river, and the November Nine bubble was officially burst.
The table offered Hewitt condolences - Martin Staszko even hugged him - and rightfully so. Congratulations are in order for Mr. John Hewitt, because despite being unable to make the final table, he did accomplish something very special finishing in 10th place for $607,882.
