Looking over to the feature table set up in front of the PokerNews desk, we spotted Ricky Fohrenbach's stack looking extremely tall.
The action from one of the hands of the tournament was retold back to our reporter by Fohrenbach and two other players sitting either side of him as it happened on one of the final hands of the last level.
The hand started with the player in the hijack raising all-in for 54,000 and being called by another player in the cutoff. On the button, Fohrenback announced all in for just under 300,000, and was met with folds back to the original caller. It took him about 30 seconds to commit his stack of 250,000.
The board ran out to give the hijack a much needed triple up, and a shocked Fohrenbach the chip lead to move up to 540,000.
