Hand #134: Jim McNurlan shipped his stack in on the button: 18,800,000 chips in total. Newly chipped up Howard Mash made the call and in a flash the second called all-in in a row was in progress.
"Give me a nine!" shouted one half of the supporters thronging the final table.
"One time!" shouted the other half.
The flop brought howls of delight from McNurlan's side: for two pair. They held over the turn, but the river brought a fourth diamond, the making a flush with one of Mash's nines. There were warm handshakes all round, illustrating the camaraderie that has characterised this event the whole way through.
