Bodog.com player Touchdown4me was doing the victory dance after pairing a four on the river to win the poker room's weekly $100,000 guaranteed tournament Sunday.
Following 10 minutes of heads-up between Touchdown4me and well-known online player Joe "Dyzalot" Morneau, both players wandered into a hand pre-flop - Touchdown4me calling and Dyzalot checking - to see a Q-10-4 board.
Both men checked, but after turning a seven, Dyzalot bet $40,000; not to be outdone Touchdown4me popped it by $100,000, causing his opponent to push all-in. Touchdown4me called to reveal pocket kings to Dyzalot's 10-7.
And while the odds weren't in his favor, a four on the river brought Touchdown4me the best two pair and the $25,000 first-place finish at the tournament.
The final results are as follows:
|2nd||Joe "Dyzalot" Morneau||$14,000|
|4th||Nick "gbmantis" Niergarth||$6,500|
