Coleman's Incredible Comeback Continues

David Coleman had the majority of his 240,000 chip stack in the middle with just 40,000 left behind and facing a bet for the rest from Travis Doran on a flop of {2-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{q-Spades}.

The clock was called, and not realizing his warning would be just five seconds, he quickly spiked the last of his chips in the middle as the floorman counted down to put himself at risk.

David Coleman: {q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Travis Doran: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{4-Spades}

Coleman had run into Doran's top set, but as the dealer quickly snapped down the {j-Spades} and {9-Clubs} to complete the board, Coleman had gone runner-runner to make an improbable straight and snatch the pot to boost his stack that was once a single T-5,000 chip to nearly 500,000 chips.
