|Chalupka (right) is mounting an improbable comeback|
First was Heinz H. with Q8 vs the rag Aces of Billy Ngo, only for the river to save his tournament life by delivering a Queen.
Shortly afterwards it was the turn of Pavel Chalupka to get the revival treatment, his pre-flop all-in with JJ generously called by the big stack of Tamas Daranyi with K♠10♠.
Pavlos Xanthopolous was on both ends of the race fest, first doubling Ngo when the pair had got it in via a blind battle. Billy showed 88 and was dismayed to find himself up again 99, but spiked the 8 he needed on the turn.
Pavlos then got back in the game with A♦7♦ hitting an Ace versus the 9s of Chalupka, who then miraculously flopped a straight after going all-in blind against Vincent Gomez.
Update - He had just half a big blind in that hand and having won two more since, including a win with J10 vs the AJ of Xanthopolous, Pavel is now back on 500,000 chips! Incredible stuff.
