2009 WSOP Main Event - The Final Table

November Nine Final Table

Hand #288 - Darvin Moon Re-takes the Lead

Joe Cada has the button. He makes it 2.5 million, and Moon calls. The flop is {6-Spades} {5-Diamonds} {J-Clubs}, and Moon taps the table. Cada bets 3.5 million, and Moon sits statue-still for a moment or two. After rubbing his beard, he says, "Raise." He pulls out a stack of 8.5 million chips and slides them into the pot. Cada makes the quick call.

The turn comes the {Q-Diamonds}, and Moon checks again. Cada checks it back, and the river brings the {2-Hearts}. This time, Moon leads with 7.250 chips, and Cada instantly calls. The cards are on their backs before the chips are even in the pot, and Moon's {Q-Hearts} {8-Spades} is the winner.

Moon - 101,850,000
Cada - 92,950,000

Welcome back to the chip lead, Mr. Moon.
