Event 2 - £2,500 H.O.R.S.E.

Woody Pecked by Williamson and Bjorin

Just before the break, a fairly big hand took place that resulted in the elimination of Woody Deck.

The flop showed {K-Diamonds} {6-Hearts} {6-Diamonds} with about 5,000 already in the pot when Daniel Negreanu led out with an 800 bet from the small blind. Robert Williamson III then raised it up to 1,600 from the big. Next action belonged to Deck, who tossed his remaining 2,600 into the pot, though the official raise was to 2,400. Chris Bjorin made the call from the button and Negreanu folded. The action then returned to Williamson who put in another raise, perhaps to officially put Deck all in. Deck called off his last 200 and Bjorin put in the extra 800, setting up a heads-up sidepot between Bjorin and Williamson heading into the flop.

Phew.... Still with me? The {5-Hearts} came on the turn and Williamson fired one last bet, putting Bjorn all in. Chris of course made the call, and the following cards were shown down:

Williamson: {A-Clubs} {8-Hearts} {A-Diamonds} {4-Hearts}
Bjorin: {3-Hearts} {4-Diamonds} {A-Spades} {A-Hearts}
Deck: {5-Spades} {2-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} {10-Hearts}

The river brought the {8-Clubs} leaving Woody Deck the odd man out as Williamson and Bjorin chopped the high with two pair (aces and sixes), and Bjorin took down the low with A-3-5-6-8.

After the hand, Bjorin stacked up about 17,000 in chips and Williamson, 34,500.
