Niall Farrell from Day 1 of Event #9

Niall Farrell just won one of the biggest pots of the tournament. Midway through the preflop action, it looked like Philipp Gruissem started the action with a raise to 135,000 and Ognjen Sekularac called from the small blind before Farrell three-bet to 575,000. Gruissem called in position and Sekularac shoved all in for 2,250,000.

Farrell didn't take long to shove over the top, putting Gruissem at risk should he call. Gruissem folded and Farrell showed two jacks, {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}. He was against the {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} of Sekularac.

The board settled things pretty quickly with Farrell flopping a set and Sekularac was drawing dead on the turn. The final board read {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Farrell won the hand and jumped over 5,000,000.

"I had already booked my flight back home to Scotland when I saw his hand," Farrell said jokingly.

Earlier in the day, Sekularac caught an ace against Farrell's pocket kings to double through him and Farrell seemed prepared for the same to happen again.
