While playing hand-for-hand, Douglas Claybrook (Vidor, TX) was all-in for his last 16k and called by Julian Gallo in the big blind.

They had to wait patiently until the action was finished on all the other tables and after another player busted out.  If Douglas also busted, he would share 120th place money.

When it was their turn, Douglas revealed pocket Tens.  He was ahead, but racing against Julian’s AJ suited.

The board bricked out K 7 4 9 6 and Douglas survived, doubled up, and is now in the money!
