Two hands to report: First all-in for Michael has K6 and Jason has AK and the board is 875, open ended straight draw, turn Q and BOOM! river 6; michael doubles up.
Four hands later with Jason still in the chiplead: QJ for Jason and a dominated JT for Michael KT5 on the flop; Michael hits the pair no turn and no river and its another monster suckout at this very strange, very lucky, ver riverish Final Table.
Now Michael Simon has the huge chip lead. To his credit, Michael says: "Best part of my game, sucking out."
and its a TV timeout.
