Nivel 8 : 300/600, 0 ante

Dan Nicewander has been forced to endure an incredible amount of tension during the last few hours, as he has tried to grind the short-stack in this Pot-Limit Omaha tournament, while simultaneously sweating his Chicago Blackhawks during their epic triple-overtime thriller in the NHL Finals.

We just heard Nicewander shout out "Yes!" in a passionate display of excitement, and naturally we assumed his Blackhawks had notched the a game winning goal. Instead, it was a bad angle shot by Nicewander that somehow managed to find the back of the net.

Holding {A-Spades}{a-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-}, the man who proudly wore his #19 Jonathan Toews jersey to play in this event, got his last 4,000 or so chips into the middle. After a couple of preflop callers were scared off when Nicewander's opponent bet the {2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} flop, he turned over his pocket rockets and hoped to be in front of a drawing hand.

His opponent rolled over {q-}{10-}{10-}{4-} for top set, however, and when a third player at the table said he folded an ace, Nicewander was left hoping for a Miracle on Ice.

Turn: {A-Diamonds}

Just like in hockey, a single shot from way out managed to decide things, and when the {6-Hearts} dropped on the river, Nicewander had secured the unlikely double. And of course, just moments later Nicewander celebrated a second time, when his Blackhawks went up 1-0 in the NHL Finals on a 3OT goal. Like they say, nothing beats run good.
