Putting on a Show

Daniel Ong

A crazy hand just took place over on one of the outer tables. We didn't see the entire hand as it happened, but according to the onlookers, a player had gone pre-flop with his stack of about 4,000 holding {a-}{a-} and Daniel Ong made the call with {5-Hearts}{9-Hearts}.

The at-risk player looked like he had pretty much locked it up as the flop came {a-}{8-}{10-}.

However, the crowd perked up as the turn brought a {j-}, and everybody erupted as a {q-} landed on the river to give Daniel the unlikely runner-runner straight!

"Sick hand!" said some of the bystanders as the busted player made his way to the rail.
