It was Level #26 of the finale with blinds running 1,800/3,600 – ante 450, when the players moved into what would become the final hand of the night. ‘shark attack’ had a massive chip lead (‘shark attack’ 235,966 in chips, ‘chimpoo’ 14,034) coming into this hand. After players posted the blinds and antes, ‘shark attack’ raised 9,900 pre-flop, and ‘chimpoo’ responded by going all-in with the rest of his 9,984 chips.
