Manuel Fritz

Steven Warburton raised to 1,200,000 from the hijack with the {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}. Manuel Fritz three-bet to 900,000 from the cutoff with the {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} which was not all in as he had a small amount left behind. Warburton called.

There was a moment of confusion as Fritz stood up as if he was all in but he still had some chips left as the flop came {2-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}.

Warburton bet to make Fritz put the rest in which he did to put himself at risk. The turn was the {j-Diamonds} and the river came the {q-Hearts} to end his night, make Warburton the big chip leader and end the seven-handed stalemate after almost four hours.
