Michael Gets Some Chips Right Back


After losing a big chunk of his stack earlier, Michael Boling got a lot of it back after an all-in confrontation with Ramil Tandoc.

Pre-flop, Michael shoved all-in from UTG with {q-Hearts}{q-Spades} and was called by Ramil, who showed {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}.

"No ace, no ace," said Michael as he stood up and started pacing around.

It was a good flop for him as it came {3-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}.

The turn brought the {4-Clubs}, though, and he would need to avoid an ace or a club to double-up.

That's what happened as the river brought the {4-Diamonds}, doubling him up to about 800,000.

Chip Counts
Michael Boling 800,000 375,000
Ramil Tandoc 400,000 -401,000
