The two had been going back and forth for hours when the final monster pot of the night went down. Ron Pease got his stack into the middle with A-10, but unfortunately ran into the A-J of Chris Tryba. However, the board ran out 7-5-2-A-10, giving Pease a very lucky double up to around 6.5 million. Tryba was left with 2 million.
The next hand was the final of the evening. All the money went in with Tryba holding A-5 offsuit, while Pease held the J 9.
The flop fell K Q 7, which was safe for Tryba. The turn brought the Q, which wasn’t what Pease needed. The river, however, was the 9, giving him the pot and the title. It was over, after around 12 hours of final-table play.
On a board of 10-9-8, Chris Tryba bet 320,000, and Ron Pease raised. Tryba quickly went all-in and Pease called. Pease tabled Q-10. Tryba exposed K-10.
The K-10 held and Tryba doubled to more than 5 million.
Shortly after losing a huge hand where Ron Pease rivered a straight, Chris Tryba got most of it back after moving his stack of around 1.9 million into the middle with A-5 offsuit.
He was called by the A-J offsuit of Pease.
The board ran out K-3-2-5-9, giving Tryba the lucky double. The players were more or less even after the hand. Play continued.
Action has been pretty slow here lately, as both players haven’t been doing much besides trading small pots back and forth. We are approaching around four minutes left in the level (50,000-100,000 with a 10,000 ante).
On a board reading 8 8 5 8 10, Ron Pease bet 275,000, and Chris Tryba quickly made the call.
The hands were tabled, and both players had 6-5 offsuit, for a full house.
The pot was chopped.
A bit later, Tryba tried to get a bit tricky with a straight, but it didn’t payoff.
Pease opened to 200,000 and Tryba called. The flop fell J 10 10, and Tryba checked. Pease fired 150,000, and Tryba made the call.
The turn was the 5, and action went check-check.
The river was the 9, and Tryba checked. Pease checked behind.
Tryba turned over the Q 8 for a straight and was good.
Both Chris Tryba and Ron Pease are back grinding at this final table.
Chris Tryba — 5,855,000
Ron Pease — 2,645,000
The players are now on level 31, which has blinds of 50,000-100,000.
Oh, and the ante is 10,000.
There are 8.5 million chips in play.
Ron Pease fired out 275,000 on a board reading K 7 5 6, and Chris Tryba called. The turn brought the 9, and Pease shoved for 615,000.
Tryba tank-called, and Pease tabled the 9 8 for a straight. Tryba mucked his hand, while Pease raked in the pot that brought him back to around 2 million.
Chris Tryba has been in command so far here during heads-up play. He got paid off when he turned a full house, picked off a big bluff, among other fortunate hands.
Tryba has built his stack to around 7 million, while Ron Pease has fallen to 1.5 million.
