Dan 'Wretchy' Martin (pictured) has played the waiting game for all of the final table and finally made his move at the expense of Eric Thompson to double up.
Thompson opened under the gun to 80,000 and Jon Bennett called on the button. Martin three-bet to 245,000 from the big blind and only Thompson called to the Q♣6♣6♦ flop. Martin checked and Thompson moved all-in.
Martin called right away with A♣A♦ and needed to fade the J♣8♣ of Thompson. The 7♦ turn and 8♠ river were good news and Martin doubled up to 1,725,000. Thompson is now the short stack with 935,000.
