On a flop, we watched Darvin Moon check-raise his heads-up opponent from 2,000 to 7,000 straight. The bettor called the raise, and the drew an all-in shove from the 2009 Main Event runner-up. It was 12,200 total, and Mr. Opponent made the call with a chance at the knockout. Moon was well in front, though:
Moon needed to dodge an ace or ten to stay alive, and the river was as safe as it gets. Just like that, Moon gets a boost back over 40,000 chips.
