Robert Damiano Doubles Up Into Too Many ChipsWith the final board showing {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{J-Spades} and about 150,000 already in the pot, Robert Damiano is all in for 173,900. He has a high number of small-denomination chips, and it's taking the dealer a while to call out the size of the bet. His opponent cuts him short and says, "It doesn't matter. I call." He shows {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts} for an overpair. Damiano shows {9-Spades}{8-Clubs} for trip nines to win the pot.It now takes another 3-4 minutes to count down Damiano's stack, and when it's complete, they arrive at the total of 173,900. When his opponent's chips are added to the pile, it dominates Damiano's side of the table. The dealer is left wondering what to do, as it's nearly impossible to deal to players on that side. The tournament staff steps in and starts coloring up Damiano's chips into a manageable stack.When it's all said and done, Damiano's poor opponent is left with just 3,000 in chips. He was eliminated about ten minutes later.Is there a picture of this anywhere?

Good game Daniel, I was starting to think you may make a real run. There is always next year. It's not like your a hockey player with a 15 year shelf life-- you can do this till you kick it at the table. There will be a Main event win someday. Meanwhile, relax a few days, have a veggie platter or 2 at various restaurants, golf and reflect on how truly blessed you are. You deserve it.
So much for a comeback.

What about WSOP Europe?If DN were to win a bracelet there would he win his bracelet bet?OK, probably not, bit of a welcher move I suppose.Speaking of which, anyone know anything about the WSOP Europe, any big pros going to be entering it? Any Europeans (or even Americans/Canadians) from here going to be entering/trying to qualify? I'm thinking of having a run at the old satellites.I should probably have a search for other threads on the subject. I'll get on that right now.

Everything is under control people. I got this covered. I AM Rocky Balboa and I can take bigger hits than that. They'll have to shoot me to get me out of this thing, I can read everyone at my table like their cards are face up. Seriously, I'm as confident as you can be about my play on this table and I'm pwning them despite the bad luck that had me go from 220 to 80, and now back to 130.
