Miracle For Bell


A few orbits of folding his blinds and Chris Bell was left extremely short. What looked like the last hand of Bell's tournament began when Bell raised it up to 150,000 in the small blind. Roch Cousineau called in the big blind and a {2-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop was dealt. Bell shoved for around 125,000 here and Cousineau immediately called.

Cousineau: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{9-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Bell: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts}

Bell was so far behind that he thought it was all over, even shaking Cousineau's hand. When the {j-Hearts} hit the turn, Bell's rail exploded with cries for a nine. It wouldn't be a nine though, with the {a-Diamonds} instead falling on the felt, giving Bell the higher end of the straight and sending him the miracle double up.
