On the fourth round of hand-for-hand action, Gail Webster moved all in for 78,000 and it folded around to chip leader Nick Sims in the small blind. Sims called after a short think and his 8♥ 8♠ was well ahead of Webster’s A♣ 6♠. She needed to hit her over card or a big draw, missed the K♣ Q♦ J♥ flop, but added some outs.
Sims moved further ahead with a turned set thanks to the 8♣ to leave Webster four river outs to keep her off the bubble. The dealer put out the river and someone yelled “boom” when it was the T♥ to give her the stay alive Broadway straight.
