Event 57 - $10,000 World Championship No Limit Hold'em

Merichko Doubles as Hansel Slides

Michael Merichko was all in preflop for his last 134,000 and had one foot out the door holding {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts} when the first four community cards were spread {7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{3-Spades} as his opponent Reed Hensel showed down {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}.

However the river was the {K-Clubs} and Merichko is saved by the king to double up to 275,000. It hasn't been a good level or so for Hansel since he burst the bubble as he's back to 300,000.
