Wattel Throws Away the Best Hand, Still Wins

Level 9 : 1,000-2,000, 500 ante

After a raise from Dario Sammartino, Mike Wattel moved all in, and Sammartino called.

Sammartino stood pat while Wattel thought for a while then took one, throwing away his {j-} face-up.

Sammartino showed {J-}{10-}{8-}{4-}{3-}. Wattel frustratedly turned over {7-}{6-}{5-}{2-}, showing that he had thrown away a certain double-up. It didn't matter, though, he drew the {8-} and earned a double through Sammartino.

"It doesn't matter if you throw away the best hand," Shaun Deeb said, who was seated at the same time. "Your hand is just destined to win."
