Doug Miller opens the pot from middle position to 35,000. Chris Horter (pictured) calls from two seats over and Saied Moradi calls from the big blind. Three ways, we see a flop of 7♠6♣2♦. Moradi checks and Miller continues for 40,000. Horter calls and Moradi folds.

The turn is the A♣. Miller bets 60,000 and Horter hesitates but calls the bet.  The river is the T♦. Miller takes his time assembling a bet, then puts out 100,000.  Horter goes into the tank for a full minute and then announces a call in disgust.

Miller turns over A♥9♥. Horter nods and mucks his hand. When the stacks are counted down, Horter has 1,000 left.  He folds five hands and then gets it all in from under-the-gun. The hand goes heads-up when Scott Buller raises on the button and the blinds fold.

Horter - A♠9♦
Buller - Q♦J♦

The flop smashes Buller, Q♣T♦8♦. The turn gives Horter an open-ender with the 7♠, but the Q♠ river clinches it for Buller.

Horter goes out in 16th and receives $2,249 for his performance in the Main Event.
