Collins Finds Broadway On The River

Phil Collins

Just before the break, we caught Phil "USCPhildo" Collins in the middle of a big pot preflop. Collins and Richard Lyndaker got all the chips in the middle preflop, with Lyndaker being the shorter of the two stacks with around 500,000. The cards were tabled, and Collins was in rough shape.

Collins: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Lyndaker: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}

The flop brought little help for Collins, coming {j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}. The turn came the {10-Diamonds}, which gave Collins additional outs, as a queen would give Collins a straight. Sure enough, the {q-Hearts} hit the river, and Collins hit runner runner to knock out Lyndaker. The whole table sat in stunned silence, as Lyndaker sat up and turned his back to the table with his hands in his face. The chips were shipped over to Collins, and an understandably devastated Lyndaker quietly made his way out of the tournament area. Meanwhile, Collins, who won some more chips on the next hand, now sits at 2.1 million.
