Danny "McLovin" Cherlow (Arlington, VA)
Before dinner break, in one level, Danny Cherlow went from 1900 up to 120,000.
First Opponent's 6-2 suited cracked his 10-10 on the river crippling the kid to 1900.
Then in the 2000 / 4000 blinds, forced all in in the big-blind, McLovin has to battle five other limpers. He didn't have the heart to look at his cards.
Flop came 8♥6♥5♥.
Two players remain betting like they have the world.
Opponents only table K♠8♦ vs. 9♠6♦ and nobody has a heart, including Danny who tables Q♠3♦.
Turn J and a miracle Q♥ on the river pushes the pot to Cherlow.
The very next hand he doubles up with A♠J♦ courtesy of another miracle river.
"I hit the ace - thank you Barry Greenstein" said McLovin.
Whenever Danny calls or scoops he says, "Yuuuuuuuuuup" like in the show Storage Wars.
