Our first player over 100,000 is David Randall. We just caught him scoop a big pot where he busted Raymond Rahme, who finished 3rd in the 2007 Main Event.

There was already 4,500 in the middle when we arrived to see the dealer fan out a flop of {9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{8-Hearts}. Rahme checked to Randall, who fired out 3,200. Rahme thought for about 15 seconds before tossing out three orange T,5000 chips, a raise to 15,000 total. It was back to Randall, and he grabbed his stack of oranges and dropped it into the middle, moving Rahme all in. He quickly made the call, and asked Randall if he had the eight. Randall shook his head, because he had something better.

Randall: {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Rahme: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}

Randall had flopped a monster, and Rahme would need a miracle to catch back up. The turn brought the {10-Diamonds}, and the river came the {3-Clubs}. Rahme shook his head as he left the table, while Randall added to his already impressive stack. He is now easily the biggest stack in the room, sitting on a whopping 135,000.
