It's just minutes into Day 2 and Melvin "The Miracle" Matibag has already lived up to his nickname.
After some raising pre-flop, it went over to Melvin who shoved his stack of more than 17,000 all-in. One of the Chinese players at his table snap-called and the cards were tabled:
It looked like Melvin was on his way out the door as he was a long shot against pocket rockets.
However, things got interesting as the flop came , putting the entire table on the edge of their seats.
The turn of did not help, but the on the river sent Melvin jumping onto his chair and shouting, "It's a miracle!" to the entire room.
After doubling up, he is now at about 36,000.
