Von Perger's Spikes the Miracle River

Jamila Von Perger spikes on the river to stay alive at EPT Barcelona

Action folded around to Jamila Von Perger, the girlfriend of poker pro Manig Loeser, and she limped from the small blind. Florian-Dimitrie Duta then sweetened it a bit to 50,000 from the big blind. It appeared to be just what Von Perger was hoping for as she quickly announced that she was all in for 499,000.

Duta seemed a bit confused over the play and asked for a count. He tanked for over four minutes and then whispered, "Call."

Von Perger seemed shocked her opponent called, but perked up a bit when she discovered her {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} was ahead of Duta's {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}. Much to her disappointment, and that of her rail, the flop came down {7-Clubs}{j-Spades}{a-Clubs} to give Duta the lead with a pair of aces.

Von Perger was drawing to a two outer for her tournament life. She didn't find it on the turn, which was the {Q-Spades}, but she did when the {4-Spades} rolled off on the river. Von Perger was in disbelief that she caught the miracle card, but she sure was happy.

"Sick," she said as she made her way over to Loeser for a quick kiss. "One time [laughs]."
