Tsik Hand on the Bubble

Konstantinos Tsikopoulos was the big blind when micro-stacked Eddie Deighan took the plunge for just a few big blinds preflop.  The table waited tensely for TD Nick to come and announce the hand.

Deighen: Qc Qh
Tsikopoulos: Ks Ts

The flop: Kh 5d 4s.  An sigh of sympathy ran round the card room.

The turn:  Qs! Could there be a more exciting card?  The room cheered him. Actually cheered a short stack doubling up on the bubble.  What could sum up the atmosphere at the Irish Open more than that.  My cold heart is warmed.

The river: Ad.  Deighen lives to fight another orbit.
