We arrived at the table in time to see Tom Hall bet enough to put Philipp Gruissem all in for his tournament life of about 2.05 million on a flop of {10-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. With about 1.2 million already in the middle, Gruissem had checked to Hall before facing this all in bet.

After about a minute, Gruissem uncapped his cards and made a move toward the muck. He never released, though, returning his cards to the front of his stack and recapping them.

"You're too confident," said Gruissem to Hall. "It looks fake."

He sat thinking for about four more minutes before finally opting to release his hand. Hall flashed the {6-Clubs} for at least trip sixes as he picked up this massive pot. Hall now has the chip lead with roughly 5.71 million in chips.
