Chip and a chair actually wins tournament
We have all heard the expression, All you need is a chip and a chair, and you don't really need the chair. But seeing it happen is something else entirely.
Well, last Sunday in my local live tournament, it actually happened. Blinds were 100/200, and a woman was down to a single 100 chip on her BB, with 9 players left. Three limpers and a pair got her back to 400, and she doubled up on the SB when she caught a straight. On the button, she went all in when she flopped bottom pair, and doubled up again when her other hole card paired on the flop. Now she was back to her starting stack, still playing all-in or fold, and got lucky a few more times (sucked me out and doubled up twice, then knocked me out on a third suckout) - and went on to win.
So it can happen. I seen it.
