Double For The Croc


Billy "The Croc" Argyros has just managed a double-up, and despite a few moments where he thought his tournament life was over, is now in good spirits.

Argyros had his tournament life on the line holding {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds} and was in good shape against the {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} of his opponent. When the board ran out {4-Spades}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{q-Spades}, Argyros, along with the rest of the table, assumed that the queen sent the hand to his opponent. A quick look at the board and everyone would realize that Argyros had hit the flush.
