Kluch-A-Doodle-Double

The action folded to David Kluchman, who open-shoved his last 505,000 from the cutoff seat. Russell Thomas called from the blinds, and the hands were opened.

While we were waiting for the ESPN cameras to set up their shots, Kluchman took a small plastic rooster (that he uses as a card protector) and placed it next to his cards.

The dealer finally rapped the table, and spread {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, giving Kluchman the lead. The {10-Spades} on the turn gave Thomas four extra outs to catch up, but the {5-Spades} bricked on the river, doubling Kluchman to over a million chips.

"How much for this?" Tristan Clemencon asked Kluchman, pointing to the plastic bird.

Kluchman laughed as he stacked his newfound chips.

Chip Counts
Russell Thomas us 1,850,000 -245,000
David Kluchman us 1,015,000 525,000
