Michael Wang

Erick Lindgren - or "Erick Limpgren", as his tablemates have started to call him - limped in and Michael Wang raised pot sitting one to Lindgren's left. It was folded back to Lindgren, who eyed Wang's stack and made the call. The flop came {J-Spades}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Lindgren bet the size of the pot, which was good enough to set Wang all-in.

"That's a good sign," Lindgren said when Wang didn't call right away.

Wang eventually made the call and tabled {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}{9-Spades}{9-Hearts} for a pair of jacks. Lindgren had an overpair with {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{4-Spades}, good enough to win the pot when the turn and river came {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs}. Wang was eliminated in 17th place and Lindgren's stack got a bit healthier in the process.
