2009 WSOP Main Event - The Final Table

November Nine Final Table

Hand #356 - Joe Cada Makes An All-In Call

Joe Cada thinking.
Joe Cada thinking.
Joe Cada has the button. He raises to 3 million and Moon makes the call. It comes {10-Clubs} {5-Diamonds} {9-Hearts}, and the action goes check-check. The turn comes the {10-Diamonds} and Moon checks once again. Cada can't resist betting 3 million, and Moon quickly announces an all in check-raise! Cada takes a sip from his water bottle as he pauses to consider his options for a few moments. He sinks deep into his chair and practically lays his head on the rail, cradled in his elbow. The decision is clearly an agonizing one. Finally, and quietly, Cada says, "I call." With that, he is now at risk, and Moon is potentially one card from the bracelet. With the entire theater on their feet, the cards are turned over:

Moon - {7-Spades} {8-Spades}
Cada - {J-Hearts} {9-Diamonds}

Cada is ahead with his two pair, but Moon is drawing to his open-ender, and he sure does run good. After a long, suspenseful delay, the river comes:

{3-Hearts}

That's safe for Cada, and he gives the ol' double fist pump as he heads off into the arms of his cheering section. With that good call, Cada has earned himself a massive double up and the chip lead once again!

Moon - 86,500,000
Cada - 108,300,000
