Marc Etienne McLaughlin

Marc Etienne McLaughlin, who finished sixth in the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event, found himself all in for 56,300 and in dire straits against Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier.

McLaughlin: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Grospellier: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}

McLaughlin was in need of a little luck, and he found some as the {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} flop delivered him a set. Neither the {3-Hearts} turn nor {9-Spades} river helped Grospellier and he shipped the double to McLaughlin.

"You can tell everyone that's how he made the final table of the Main Event," Jason Lavallee joked.

McLaughlin smiled and quipped, "Ten times tens versus aces."
