Derrick Contreras (pictured) tried multiple times to double up at the final table and final had his prayer answered against Gary Fleischman. Contreras caught a magical river card and knocked Fleischman to under three big blinds as a result. 

Contreras shoved for 405,000 on the button and Fleischman called from the big blind. Contreras led going into the flop with A4♣ against the K♠Q of Fleischman and the J9♠3 board gave Fleischman a straight draw to go along with his two live cards.

The Q turn paired Fleischman but the A♣ river gave Contreras a better pair to double up. Contreras's rail erupted as the river hit and Contreras is back up tp 20 big blinds.
