Hand #58: Mustapha Kanit raised to 48,000 from under the gun, Dan Smith moved all in for 444,000 out of the small blind, and Kanit called.
"Four forty-four?" Smith said. "Good omen. Guaranteed winner. Four-four-four flop."
The flop wasn't all fours, but the board gave Smith two backdoor draws. The on the turn kept both of them alive, and Smith looked excited.
"Can I sweat the river?" he asked, wanting to peel the river card on his own.
The dealer burned one last card, then spiked the on the river.
"What the hell!" Smith yelled out, grinning.
He hit the rail in sixth place, earning $95,515, while Kanit chipped up to 1.17 million.
