“I only looked at a queen,” said Yilmaz as he tabled QDiamond SuitJClub Suit.

Remmel tabled KDiamond SuitQSpade Suit and was in great shape for a double up, though he would have been fine with losing.

“Just spike a jack and let’s all go to sleep,” said Remmel before the flop was dealt.

The dealer peeled off a flop of 4Club Suit3Diamond Suit2Diamond Suit and Yilmaz was still searching for a jack to end the tournament.

“Nope,” said Remmel. “Looks like we are going to be playing a little bit longer.”

The turn and river were both bricks and Remmel doubled up to just 670,000.

Yilmaz tabled ADiamond SuitKDiamond Suit and was in great shape to double up against Remmel’s KSpade Suit7Heart Suit.

“Oops,” said Remmel. “King salmon floating up stream. Or down. I don’t know.”

The flop was QHeart Suit8Spade Suit6Heart Suit and Remmel was still searching for a seven to end the tournament. The turn was the 6Spade Suit and the river was the 8Club Suit and Remmel scooped the pot with ace high.
