Event #15: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

X-22 Having a Roller Coaster of a Tournament

• Level 8: 300-600, 0 ante

On a board of {J-Clubs}{5-Spades}{K-Spades}, Paul Magriel announced that he was all in. Magriel was snap called by his opponent on the button, who turned over {J-Spades}{5-Hearts} for two pair, which was significantly ahead of Magriel's {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}. The turn and river were of no help to Magriel, as they fell {4-Hearts} and {6-Spades}. This hand knocked Magriel down to about 5,000 in chips.

A few hands later we witnessed the aftermath of a hand where Magriel got all of his chips in the middle.

Magriel: {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}
Opponent: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}

The board fell {Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{7-Spades} and Magriel scooped the pot, doubling up to 11,900 in chips.
