Brandon Shack-Harris

Brandon Shack-Harris' hopes for World Series of Poker Player of the Year just got a nice push in the right direction thanks to a very late double up here on Day 2. Shack-Harris is currently 116.8 points behind George Danzer in the race, but Danzer was eliminated earlier today, and there are 225 points up top in this one.

On this hand, Shack-Harris had opened on the button before Wai Tung Lo reraised to 12,500 from the big blind. Shack-Harris reraised to 27,000 with a little over 80,000 behind, and then Lo moved all in. Lo had Shack-Harris covered, and the American went into the tank for a minute or two. Eventually, Shack-Harris made the call with the {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} and was flipped for his tournament life against the {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} for Lo.

The flop delivered great news for Shack-Harris when the {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Spades} fell to improve him to a set of nines. It'd now be a bit harder for Lo to win the pot and bust Shack-Harris, and then the dealer officially ended the sweat on the {7-Clubs} turn. The river was the {Q-Spades} to finish off Shack-Harris with a full house and give him the double up.
