In about 4 hands, 2010 WSOPE Main Event Champion James Bord went from mis-reading his hand for a flush (and giving away half his stack), doubling up James Dempsey, and the very next hand busting through Dempsey.
We caught the whole hand where Bord doubled up Dempsey.
Dempsey got it all in preflop for 23,000 and Bord made the call.
Bord had and Dempsey had
The flop came giving Dempsey trips and Bord a pair of tens to go with the sixes on the board. The turn came to give Bord a better two pair, but the on the river didn't improve Bord and he shipped the big pot to Dempsey.
He was left with 23,000 and Dempsey chipped up to 55,000. We didn't catch the next hand, but Bord busted through Dempsey who now is left with around 85,000.
At the very least, Bord can be happy that he donated his chips to his buddy and fellow Brit.
