Miracle Runout Propels Yan to Big Stack
Level 15 : Blinds 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
David Yan had raised to 17,000 and Daniel Dvoress called. Jean-Noel Thorel shipped it in for 163,000 and Yan called for most of his stack. Dvoress then pushed all-in over the top and Yan called for 201,000.
The flop gave Dvoress the top set while Thorel had the nut flush draw. Somehow, Yan pulled a rabbit out of the hat with the turn and river as he improved to a straight.
