Walnum Needs a Miracle

Andreas Walnum

There was one bustout and one table still played a hand that would see Andreas Walnum reduced to a miracle, while Ivaylo Sivinov showed up out of nowhere with an above-average stack.

Walnum defended his big blind against a raise by Marco Figuccia and check-called a bet on the {8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} flop. On the {10-Clubs} turn, Walnum bet the pot, Figuccia shoved and the Norwegian called.

Marco Figuccia: {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Clubs}
Andreas Walnum: {J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{X-}

The {7-Clubs} on the river further improved Figuccia to a flush and he doubled for 54,200, leaving Walnum on fewer than one big blind on the direct money bubble.
