Will "The Thrill" Failla finished 11th in a $1,500 NLHE Event earlier today and then registered for this tournament. So far, the poker gods have been treating him well as he is one of the biggest stacks around.
In one hand we just saw him defend the big blind against a raise from early position for 1,000. On the flop, he check-called 1,500 on the turn and both then checked the river. The opponent gave up the hand and Failla announced "king high" before turning over . That was good enough to rake in the pot.
