Europe Takes It
Greg Merson had chipped Sam Holden down to a few big blinds.
Then Team Europe then scored a double, double up and took the lead. Merson had a dominating lead with about 170,00 but lost it in two hands.
Holden moved all-in for 26,000 and Merson called a timeout.
He went to Ivey and Hellmuth and asked for some advice. Hellmuth said he'd fold so Merson said he'd definitely call then.
Americas: Q♥ 9♣
Europe: A♠ 7♦
The board brought Europe an ace and they doubled up.
Then they doubled up again.
Players got their chips in the middle and Europe showed A♠ 5♥ to Americas' A♥ 2♦. The board came T♦ 4♦ J♥ 7♥ and Europe doubled up to the lead.
Play continued and both teams got around even in chips. Then they got it all-in again.
There was a raise, an all-in and a call.
Europe showed T♥ T♦ and the Americas showed Q♣ J♠.
The board came 3♦ 7♥ A♠ 7♠ T♣ and Team Americas was left with just a bit more than a big blind. They went all-in the following hand and Holden called.
Americas: Q♥ 4♣
Europe: 8♥ 8♦
The board came 6♠ 7♠ 4♠ 3♥ A♠ and Team Europe took the cup.
