Perkins Spikes a Double

Bill Perkins

Bill Perkins jammed for the last 51,000 and Max Greenwood asked for a count, then tossed in calling chips. The rest of the table got out of the way and the cards were turned over.

Greenwood flashed {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} and Perkins immediately said "I am in trouble," then revealed {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}.

"We are looking for a queen or hearts," Perkins continued.

The flop came {9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Perkins gasped "that's no queen or hearts."

However, the {Q-Diamonds} improved Perkins and he remained in the lead thanks to the {8-Spades} river.

"The guy that had me bust with ace-queen of hearts will be pissed," Perkins grinned. Earlier today, he had started a competition to guess the hand he would bust with and the "winner" receives an entry into the WSOP Main Event.
