Hand #19: Maurice Hawkins limped in for 100,000. Stephen Graner raised to 250,000. Bradley Anderson called from the cutoff one to his left. Jonathan Dimmig called from the big blind and it was folded back to Maurice Hawkins, who quickly moved all in. Graner was next to act and he too went all in without hesitation. Anderson quickly folded. The hands were turned over:

Graner: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

"Queen of diamonds," said Hawkins, trying to will the two-outer to come.

The flop came {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Hawkins was all but drawing dead with two cards left. He stood up and started shaking the other players' hands at the table. Ironically, he would get the card he called for, as the {6-Diamonds} on the turn was followed by the {Q-Diamonds} on the river.
