Siegel's Supreme Suckout

$2000 + $200 Championship Event
$500,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool (Day 1B)

After a player opened for 1,500, Eric Siegel (Melville, NY) raised to 5,500, then Ronald McDonald of Ft. Valley, VA (that's his real name, folks - I don't make this stuff up) makes it 25k straight. The opened folded and Eric shoved for 29k. Ronald called the extra 4k, showing showing pocket Aces.

Eric was in horrible shape holding AK of hearts. The flop came T 8 8 rainbow, with no hearts, leaving Eric in need of runner-runner QJ for Broadway or running Kings for trips (this is when someone says they mucked a King). The turn was....a King, giving him a glimmer of hope with two outs remaining in the deck. The river was.......a KING! Eric more than doubled up to about 70k.

Eric says, "before you call me a donk, go back and look at the bad beat I took earlier this week. That's why I don't get upset when it happens because it eventually comes back to you."

Ronald McDonald is down, but not out.
