Manig Loeser already has 2 World Series of Poker (WSOP) cashes to his name this year, including one in this format. Lee Watkinson has 17 WSOP cashes which include a bracelet in the $10,000 version of this event held in 2006. Here are the two clashing with disastrous consequences for one of them.
Watkinson limped into the pot in middle position before Donnacha O'Dea isolated with a 2,400 raise from the cutoff. Manig Loeser then raised 'pot', Watkinson moved all-in for 13,200 and O'Dea folded. It was showdown time with Watkinson at risk of elimination.
A boat for Loeser and Watkinson was left upstream without a paddle.
