Getting it in for his last 22,000, Sam Higgs held {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts} on an {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{a-Spades} flop against the {a-}{k-} of Bill Perkins.

Higgs wasn't in as bad a shape as it initially seemed, with the ace also serving as the bottom end of a straight draw, with any nine giving him a straight.

The turn was the {10-Clubs} but the river {7-Diamonds} improved him to two pair and left Perkins short.

"I've still got my extra chippy," said Perkins. "When do I use it Jason?"

Jason Koon has plenty of experience in short deck tournaments around the world.

"Don't use it," he advised. "Play short."
