We arrived at Charlie Carrel’s table just in time to see the British player agonize over a tough decision with a stack of 18,425 behind. It appeared to be a blind on blind battle as Carrel, sitting in the small blind, had a bet of 3,600 out in front of him. His opponent in the big blind had an initial bet of 1,100 out on the felt but had put Carrel to the test and moved all-in.

The Brit earned the double up when the board ran out climbing to 36,850 while his unfortunate opponent dropped down to around 15,000.
