Event 17: Royal Couple Kind to Failla

$5,300 Championship NLH $10 Million Guaranteed (Re-Entry)
Level 10: 400/800/ 100

Will “The Thrill” Failla is all-in for his tournament life and up against the player on the button. After a few moments of deliberation, the button makes the call and the cards are turned face-up:

Button player: AhJc
Failla: QsKs

The board is kind to Failla as it falls 8hKd3d10hKh, and Failla ends up making trip Kings by the river to double up. The 2011 “Legends of Poker” WPT Champ now has about 25K (31bbs) to his stack.
