Event #30: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship

Mitsuhiro Nakao Mounts Epic Comeback, Finally Falls

• Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

After going all-in for his last 11,000 chips, good for just a single big blind and an ante, Mitsuhiro Nakao found a double-up and began making moves. He rode the momentum provided this first win and eventually built his tiny stack to over 200,000, putting him above average for a few minutes.

Nakao eventually moved all-in again with {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds} and was hoping for a coin flip, but found himself in bad shape against his opponent's {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}.

The final board rolled out {4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{4-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and Nakao's miraculous run came to an abrupt end.
