The last two players in the tournament are taking a short break while the staff get the trophy and heads-up set up.
In the final hand before the break, Dinesh Alt opened to 200,000 from the small blind, and was called by Dominik Nitsche in the big blind. The flop came as Alt continued with a bet of 350,000 in chips. Nitshce called as the turn fell the . Alt didn’t slow down, counting out 550,000 in chips, and slid them into the middle. Nitsche called once more as the completed the board. Alt tanked for a minute before announcing all in, which was almost snap-called.
Alt tabled for a rivered full house, as Nitsche tabled his for rivered trips. That hand saw Nitsche go home with $80,040 for his troubles.
With three players remaining, Dejan Divkovic opened to 160,000 in chips before being met with an all-in from Dinesh Alt. The dealer counted out his stack, which totalled 1,320,000 in chips. Divkovic did a quick count of his stack, before making the call.
The board ran out to see Alt spike the king on the flop and hold to the river.
No sooner had we taken our seats to write up the previous hand, was there a shout of “all in and call,” as we quickly rushed back over to the table.
David Campion had committed his stack into the middle and was called by Dominik Nitsche. Campion’s was behind to Nitsche’s and when the board ran out it was all over for the last Australian at the table.

Divkovic was able to flop a pair to take the lead, but the ten on the turn gave Campion the lead, and he was able to hang on.
The hand of the day just happened involving Dominik Nitsche and Dejan Divkovic. It started with Nitsche opening to 160,000 in chips, before being met with a raise to 400,000 in chips. Nitsche then four-bet to 660,000, as Divkovic contemplated his next move. He counted a bet of 1,100,000 in chips and pushed them into the middle. No sooner did he release his hands from the chips, did Nitsche announce all in which was snap-called.
The crowd was up on their feet as the dealer spread out the flop of . The jack in window excited Divkovic, but not until he saw the straight draw it had produced for Nitsche. The turn fell the as Nitsche made his straight, and was one card away from eliminating Divkovic and having a dominating chip lead against the two shorter stacks. But just like he’s done all day, Divkovic was able to find a repeat on the river to fill up and win the hand.
Dinesh Alt started proceedings with a raise to 125,000 in chips. Michael Fadersen then moved all in from the cut-off for his last 500,000 in chips as the decision moved to David Campion. He tanked for over a minute, before finally flatting the call, prompting Alt to fold his hand.
“Nice nit roll,” said Fadersen, a little frustrated it took Campion so long to make a decision.
The board ran out to see Fadersen eliminated and receiving just short of $50,000 for his efforts.
