Higgins Doubles Through Wahlbeck

Level 17 : 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Right after winning that substantial pot from Mark Teltscher, Ville Wahlbeck has just given a few chips across to Simon Higgins. Rushing over to their table, all we could see was Higgins {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades} and a board of {6-Spades}{9-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{10-Spades} which made the latter a straight. We never saw the Finn's hand but obviously it wasn't good enough.

Still 26 players remain, there is a redraw at 24 and only 23 get paid.
