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.

Farrell: {10-Spades}{9-Spades}
Escobar: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}

"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 {6-Spades}{7-Clubs}{9-Hearts} flop made things interesting.

"I'll take that," Farrell said of his pair and gutshot. The dealer then burned and turned the {10-Diamonds} 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 {10-Clubs} to improve Farrell to a full house. A disappointed Escobar was unexpectedly sent to the rail in 11th place for €40,410.
