With four players left in the WSOP Event #19: No-Limit Hold'em tournament, and all players guaranteed a six-figure payday, new short stack Ted Gillis started to get active, raising all in repeatedly. Gillis limped in the small blind with 10-9 hearts and called a preflop raise by Fernandez. When the flop came 10-K-4 Gillis went for broke and shoved all in. Holding K-Q, Fernandez called and watched in anguish as Gillis hit his miracle 10 on the river. Not only did he stay alive, but he essential reversed chip counts with Fernandez, the new short stack.This remarkable turn of events is captured in this series of action poker shots below.
