CPPT Event 9: 9th Place - Ralph Murphy ($1,285)

Event 9
Level 26 (15,000/30,000/5,000)
Total Entrants: 195
Players Remaining: 8
Chip Average: 550,000
Ralph Murphy (Stow, MA)
With so many short stacks every all-in and a call is basically someone playing for their tournament life, which was more or less the situation when Sy Israel moved all-in from the button and Ralph Murphy called in the big blind having Sy slightly covered.

Sy held [Kc][Js] and Murphy held [6d][6s] so they were flipping, with Sy taking the advantage after the [Jh][9h][7s] flop.

The turn and river would brick out and Murphy was left with just enough to cover himself in the small blind next hand, which would be his last as Chris Leong moved all-in with [4c][4h] and held against Murphy's [Ah][3s].

Murphy, who was making his third ever Foxwoods Final Table appearance, will make just under $1,300 for his efforts.

Players are now ten minutes from the end of Level 26, after which there will be under 100 big blinds in play, even further forcing the action in this "turbo" event.
