Peter Tahin has seen her chips dwindle in the last level. Down to 10 big blinds, she jammed from the big blind when her blind was raised to 2,200 by Maksym Lavrov .
He reluctantly called, tabling Kh 8s, behind but live versus Tahin’s Ac 9s.
Her tournament life was hanging in the balance but the poker gods smiled on her, delivering a board of 4c 3d 5h 2h Qd to give her a winning straight.
“That was a good turn card,” one of her tablemates announced accurately.
She got about the business of stacking up her newly-acquired booty – now on 22,000.
