Chip Average: 241,250
We missed the early action and come to the table with the board reading K♥6♥4♦2♥. Craig Welko (pictured) and Shawn McCracken check it to Simon Webster, who bets 38,000 into a pot of around 90,000. Welko asks how much it is, and upon getting the answer, raises to 100,000 straight. McCracken quickly moves all-in for around 375,000.
Webster folds, but Welko snap-calls, turning over A♥T♥ for the nut flush. McCracken reveals K♦K♣ for top set. McCracken has Welko covered, but will be left with about 75,000 if the board fails to pair.
The river brings the 3♥, and the massive pot goes to Welko, who now holds the chip lead. John Moore is second in chips with 500,000.
Craig Welko - 588,000
Simon Webster - 295,000
Shawn McCracken - 74,000
