From $90 to 130,000

Shawn @Sac_Poker Roberts made @WPT $3500 Main Event via a $90 Step Satellite early this week. He played Sunday's Day 1B and lost two-thirds of his starting stack in the first few levels.

Good thing for Roberts that these are hour-long blinds for the WPT Rolling Thunder. He showed a lot of patience the rest of Day 1B and chipped up to 52,900 by the end of the night.

His Day 2 starting table just broke, and it's partially his fault.

Roberts calls for just about his entire stack when his challenger shoves the river on a King-high board with 3 diamonds. Roberts is holding AK - no diamonds - and his challenger shows KJ, also no diamonds, and when the chips are counted out it is Roberts with the KO, moving to 130,000.
