Big O

Shortly before this hand, Adam Friedman loudly prayed to be the one to bust Norman Chad, even offering to finish in 16th place, because "it would be totally worth it".

His prayers were answered shortly after as Chad raised all-in in early position for 27,000 and was called in the small blind by Friedman.

Norman Chad: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Adam Friedman: {2-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The flop of {9-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{5-Clubs} gave Chad the lead with a pair of fours to go along with a straight draw.

A {9-Diamonds} was seemingly no help until the {9-Clubs} fell on the river, giving Friedman nines full of deuces, eliminating the legendary poker commentator and mixed-game aficionado.
