Event 13: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

Engelbert Doubles Through Hung

Action started with Stephen Hung on the button, and he raised it up. Glenn Engelbert raised all in for 59,000 total, and it was on Donald Auger. He made the call, as did Hung. The flop came down {k-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts}, and Auger checked to Hung, who bet. Auger nodded his head, and mucked his hand. The cards were flipped, and Engelbert was in a world of hurt.

Hung: {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Engelbert: {q-Spades}{7-Clubs}

The turn brought the {6-Diamonds}, and the announcer mistakenly said "that doesn't help Glenn." In fact, it was the best card that he could have seen, as it gave him an open ended straight draw. As though the gods of irony were watching from above, the {5-Clubs} hit the river, giving Engelbert his straight. Engelbert slammed his water bottle on the table, as if to say "I'm still here" while the rest of the table got a bit of a chuckle out of Engelbert's luck.
