Hand #117: Timur Margolin opened the button for 400,000 and Chris Ferguson called from the big blind, leaving himself 1.6 million behind (eight big blinds).

The flop came {7-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{A-Spades} and Ferguson checked. Margolin bet 320,000 and Ferguson moved all in. Margolin called instantly.

Chris Ferguson: {K-Spades}{2-Spades}
Timur Margolin: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

The {2-Clubs} hit the turn, giving Ferguson additional outs with now kings and deuces also good on top of the spades he already had.

"Too many outs syndrome," one Margolin fan shouted from the rail.

The {5-Clubs} completed the board — the wrong kind of black card for Ferguson.

The remaining three players are each guaranteed $223,564.
