It was a good couple of hands for Josh Prager.

In the first, a player open-jammed for 22,000 under the gun and Prager called from the hijack.

Josh Prager: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}
UTG Player: {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

The board ran out a clean {6-Spades}{10-Spades}{k-Spades}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Prager scored the knockout.

While he was still stacking his chips, he opened with a raise and then called when an opponent jammed for approximately 30,000.

Josh Prager: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Opponent: {j-Spades}{10-Clubs}

The {10-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{k-Clubs} flop paired the at-risk player but that was all the help they'd get as the {k-Hearts} turn and {5-Hearts} river gave the pot to Prager, who vaulted into six-figure terriroty.
