David "Doc" Sands came into the day with just 3,325, and with the big blind starting at 500, we knew he would be getting it in rather quickly. Sure enough, on the fourth or fifth hand of the day, we saw Sands raise it up to 1,750 in early position. It folded around to Jeremy Druckman in the big blind, and as soon as he peeked down at his cards, he put out a stack of yellow T1,000 chips for a raise. Sands tossed in the remainder of his stack, and saw that he was in trouble.
Sands was looking for a king to win the the hand, and he got a piece of the flop. Sands could now catch a king or a three for the win, or running clubs would get him a chop. The on the turn ended his hopes for that, and the on the river sealed the hand. Sands wished the table luck before grabbing his stuff, and heading for the rail.
