Event #3: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Dudley Doubles Up With a Little Help From His Friends

Dash Dudley shoved in early position for his last 430,000, and although it took a very long time for everyone else to fold, fold they did, and Dudley bumped his stack to 550,000.

So next hand, under the gun this time, Dudley shoved again. This time Bart Davis made the call. Everyone else folded, and they flipped their cards.

Dudley: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Davis: {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

"Ace!" shouted Dudley and accidentally knocked his chair over. He ran over to Joe Cada, perched at the rail, and touched him for good luck.

"ACE!!!" Dudley continued to order the deck as the dealer prepared to put some community cards on the board, but it would be the queen that saved him.

Board: {q-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

Dudley thanked Cada for his good luck with a high five as he doubled to around 1.2 million. Davis dropped to around 1.35 million.
