Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em

Dwyte Pilgrim Bouncing Back

• Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante
Dwyte Pilgrim

After taking some hits, Dwyte Pilgrim found himself with just 3,000 in chips. He built that back up to 25,000 and got it all in with {J-Spades}{J-Hearts} against his opponent's {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}. The dealer started to put out the flop and the {A-Clubs} came out the window. It wasn't looking good for Pilgrim but the next card fanned was the {J-Diamonds} to give Pilgrim a set. The rest of the board was {3-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and Pilgrim doubled up.
