William Miner opened to 525 from the cutoff and found a caller in the big blind.
The flop fell down with two hearts and after a check from his opponent, Miner fired out 600 only to get check-raised to 1,750.
Miner made the call to see the land on the turn and a 2,000-chip bet follow. Miner again made the call as the landed on the river.
Facing another strong bet; this time amounting to 3,500, Miner went into the tank before stating, "I'm the worst!" and making the call.
Miner tabled his for middle pair, and his opponent mucked his hand to see Miner pushed the pot to move to 22,000 in chips.
In Event #26: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed Eddy Sabat managed to double through Phil Ivey numerous time before eventually going on to finish in the money at 64th place.
Approaching one of our PokerNews reporters, he imparted us with the fact that he truly does have the wood over arguably the greatest poker player.
After being crippled to just 200 earlier in the day, Sabat doubled in a blind-on-blind battle before it again, and then again before they both had their table broken.
Amazingly they both wound up at the same table where Sabat managed to spike one more double to see his once crippled stack swell to around 5,500 courtesy solely of Ivey.
With Ivey now crippled, he was unable to endure the Sabat-esque return to life and eventually made his way to the rail.
"I wanna re-raise Phil Hellmuth so he can go psycho!" uttered a player on a table that was closely located to Hellmuth's.
I think everyone does buddy!
