Eric "E-Fro" Froehlich was on life support just a few minutes ago, when his was beat by a flopped straight, in a hand that the longtime games player took to Twitter to celebrate after losing the minimum.
Last hand of level 3 bet kk vs KTo who calls out of position. QJ9 flop. Lost the minimum instead of busting tho. 6kFollow @efropoker
Just a half hour or so later, however, and Froehlich's stack has been returned to its former health. We saw E-Fro dragging a large pot his way, and with a player departing his table in a hurry, it was clear the two-time WSOP bracelet winner had notched a knockout to pad his stack.
We stuck around to catch Froehlich win a few more small pots, and after dodging elimination earlier in a spot many amateurs would have gladly gone bust, the former Magic the Gathering great has played his regrowth card to perfection, returning from the graveyard after an early clash.
