Matthew Gailums (Credit Borgata / Tim Kelliher)

On the last hand of Level 10 with blinds of 800/1,600 and an ante of 200, a blind-on-blind battle ensued between Matthew "gailums" Gailums and Ryan "Whosyourdoddy" Dodd that saw 7,800 go in the middle to a flop of {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

Gailums check-raised a bet of 2,300 to 8,000 and Dodd called to bring the turn {6-Spades}, where Gailums bet another 8,000. Dodd called again and the river fell {q-Hearts}. With 26,700 behind, Gailums jammed and Dodd called once more to take the hand to showdown.

Matthew "gailums" Gailums: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Ryan "Whosyourdoddy" Dodd: {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Both players had straights, with Dodd's turned ten-high straight bested by Gailums' rivered queen-high straight to earn the latter the double.
