From middle position, Ronnie Bardah raised all in for 196,000. In the small blind, Erkut Yilmaz called. Bardah showed the {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}, but was behind the {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}.

Bardah stood from his chair as the cameras rolled and said, "I never get lucky in the World Series of Poker. In four years, I've never gotten lucky in this tournament. If I get lucky, I'll shut up."

The flop came down {K-Hearts}{8-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and Yilmaz kept his lead. The turn was the {6-Diamonds} to vault Bardah in front with a set and you could see the excitement shoot through his body. The river was the {9-Spades} and Bardah had doubled up.

"I'll shut up now," he finished as he sat back down to stack up his chips.

"We don't want you to do that," said one of the ESPN producers.
