Chris Pregowski has joined the line at the registration desk having just been eliminated in a recent hand.

As Pregowski recounted the hand he flopped a flush draw and bet out and then called a raise.

Pregowski hit his flush on the turn and all the money went in.

Pregowski had the {9-}{7-} flush but his opponent out-pipped him with a {10-}{6-} flush.

Undeterred Pregowski is straight back in to the fray.
