Marvanek Knuckles Under at the End

With just 13,000 chips left in his stack Michael Marvanek was in double-up-or-go-home mode. He got his stack in the middle with {K-Spades} {J-Spades} against Peter Nielsen's {5-Clubs} {5-Spades}. Marvanek was stoked to pair kings on a flop of {k-Diamonds} {9-Clubs} {7-Clubs}, and even more thrilled to see a blank {9-Spades} hit the turn. But he knocked the table in anger and frustration when the river fell {5-Hearts} to make a full house for Nielsen.

"Come on!" said Marvanek in disgust. His protests were no good. The pot was pushed to Nielsen and Marvanek's day ended a few hands early.
