Ulrich UL

• Level 13: 1,200-2,400, 200 ante

You've got to feel for Tim Ulrich, struggling towards the dinner break with just 45,000 now. Early position Samir Moukawem opened for 10,400, which must have looked promising to Ulrich on the button with {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}. He reraised to 25,000, and after one dwell, action passed back to Moukawem. He was all in and called in a flash.

Moukawem showed {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts} which prompted the dwell-pass player to congratulate himself on his laydown of {A-}{Q-}. Moments later and this was reversed the board ran out {Q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}...{Q-Clubs}!

The river, however, fell {K-Diamonds} smacking the kings and prompting an equally dramatic table smack from Moukawem who thanked the deck and doubled up to over 120,000.
