Hunter Cichy

There was a long period at the final table where things were cruising along with no big hands. Then things went sideways.

Eric Morian opened to 100,000 from the hijack and Jeremiah Williams moved all in for 825,000 from the small blind. Morian called to create the first big hand of the final table.

Morian: khth
Williams: adjc

Williams was ahead for the double but Morian hit the qhts9d flop. Williams had open-ended straight draw outs along with his overs and retook the lead on the ac turn. The river finished 5h to give Williams the double and put Morian down near the felt.

He found a small double up then saw Hunter Cichy move all in from the button for 755,000. Morian called all in for approximately 250,000 for the small blind and Stephen Bristow slow-peeled his big.

“(Expletive deleted),” Bristow said. “I need a count.”

After hearing the number, he called with a chance for the double knockout.

Cichy: ac8s
Morian: khtd
Bristow: adjs

“I’m live for the triple up!” Morian exclaimed.

Bristow was ahead for the double KO and the ah9d6s4d3d broke the logjam at the final table.

9th: Hunter Cichy – $3,199
