Al the Roller Coaster

When we last visited Al Sanchez he was showing a bluff that made QQ lay down to his all-in with 55, pushing Al's stack to about 63,000. Less than a full level later and I see Al is all in and called. Al has 9-9, his opponent A-4, and Al not only hold, he turns the 99 into a K-high straight. He doesn't move to 125,000-plus though. He was somehow down to 7500 by the time he's moved all-in, so the level was quite a Roller-Coaster for him
