The action folds to Michael Watson in the cutoff seat and he makes it 7,500 to play. Next to act is Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier on the button and he three-bets to 17,500. Both blinds fold and after 30 seconds thinking time Watson makes the call.

The dealer puts out the {5-Hearts}{7-Spades}{J-Clubs} flop, Watson checks, ElkY continues to 22,500 and Watson pauses before making the call. The turn brings the {9-Diamonds} into play and again Watson checks. ElkY sees no reason to slow down and he bets chips worth 35,500, a bet that Watson calls without much thought.

The river sees the {6-Clubs} make an appearance and once again Watson checks. ElkY moves a tower of chips forward which prompts a huge sigh from Watson who instantly asks "how much?" The answer is 77,500, the biggest bet of the final table so far.

Watson sits studying the board, occasionally shaking his head and smirking. He is deep in the tank and he stays there for a full five minutes before letting go of his hand and flicking it towards the muck. ElkY picks up the biggest pot so far.
