$25K High Roller: Ferguson falls to Hachem
Chris Moorman just earned himself a few extra thousand thanks to some hefty re-raising, taking his stack up to 45,000.
Another player heading in the right direction is Team PokerStars Pro Joe Hachem. He just saw off Chris Ferguson when, on a board of 2d-6c-Ks-3d he made it 4,200 from the small blind with Jh-5s. Ferguson called from the big blind for a river card 4d which made a straight for Hachem. He put 42,500 in the middle for Ferguson to think about and the American eventually called. He saw Hachem's hand, folded, tapped the table, shook hands with Hachem, picked up his coat and left.
Chip counts into level five look like this with blinds at 300-600 with a running 50 ante.
