Defending Champ Loses a Little

• Level 6: 200-400, 50 ante

After a player in early position opened for 800, Charlie Combes shoved all in for 8,025 from the button. Defending champ Steve O'Dwyer asked for a count before making the call from the big blind, and the original raiser folded.

O'Dwyer: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}
Combes: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}

Combes was well out in front, but O'Dwyer has been known to run hot in this tournament. The {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop made it seem like he might do so again as he picked up an open-ended straight draw, but then the {4-Diamonds} and {6-Diamonds} blanked on the turn and river respectively. Ship the doubles to Combes.
