Hand #8 – Darren Rabinowitz min-raises UTG+1 to 400,000, and Neville Darrell calls from middle position. Both players check to the turn on a board of Ac6s5d9s, Rabinowitz bets 400,000, and Darrell calls.

The river is the 2d, Rabinowitz bets 1,275,000, and Darrell calls. Rabinowitz shows AsKc for a pair of nines, and it appears to be good and Darrell studies his own hand without showing it.

But then Darrell seems to realize that he has the best hand, and turns over Ad6d to win the pot with two pair, aces and sixes. Several players express shock at the slow-roll, though it’s a bit restrained because it appeared to be unintentional.

Neville Darrell  –  14,800,000  (74 bb)
Darren Rabinowitz  –  5,300,000  (26 bb)


Level 36 comes to an end after that hand, and the blinds increase to 150,000-300,000 with a 50,000 ante. Play continues without a break.
