In the last hand of Level 25, a huge hand took place at the TV table.
It began when Niall Farrell opened for 70,000 from the cutoff only to have Gianluca Escobar three-bet to 175,000 from the button. Sam Greenwood then four-bet to 475,000 from the small blind, and Farrell, who had the big stack, five-bet jammed. Escobar called off for 1.572 million, and Greenwood got out of the way.
"I have a cracker hand," said Farrell, who had apparently been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
"I said I wouldn't do this again on the stream," added Farrell, who would be left with just 10 big blinds if he lost.
Farrell was behind, but the flop made things interesting.
"I'll take that," Farrell said of his pair and gutshot. The dealer then burned and turned the to give Farrell two pair and drive a dagger through Escobar's heart.
Escobar had eight outs headed to the river, but it came the to improve Farrell to a full house. A disappointed Escobar was unexpectedly sent to the rail in 11th place for €40,410.
