Robert Paddock's tournament life was on the edge of a cliff just a few moments ago, but he cracked aces with kings and survived. Now he's doubled again to climb through the standings.
Paddock opened to 27,000, Andjelko Andrejevic made it 96,000 and the rest of the chips went in as Paddock shoved for 226,000 and Andrejevic called off.
The dealer spread out the board of and Paddock was confused when someone at the table said, "nice hand".
"Did you win?" he asked Andrejevic. The answer was negative.
"I thought you flopped a straight," Paddock said. But Andrejevic finished with kings up and Paddock's aces up scooped the big pot.
