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.

Mash: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
McNurlan: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

"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: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} for two pair. They held over the {5-Diamonds} turn, but the river brought a fourth diamond, the {6-Diamonds} 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.
