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

Shirley Avoids the Finish Line


Paralympic gold-medalist Marlon Shirley was all in under the gun for his last 74,000 with {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}. Ken Kao called with {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}, and with nothing of note from the {a-Clubs}{7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{2-Clubs} board, Shirley doubled up to keep his dream of Main Event gold alive a little longer.
