A Move Pat Lyons Would Be Proud Of


In the BB for 24,000 with just 4BB behind, Jeremiah Niccum moves all in dark over a preflop raise and tables Five_Seven.

The board goes 8-9-T-J and Niccum - who hit quads on the money bubble to survive - gets a late-night double with 15 players left to build back to almost 300,000.

We withheld the name and hand of the challenger to protect the innocent.
