The player on the button after weighing his decisions moved all in, he had all players in the hand covered, the fourth player folded and cards were turned over.
The initial short stack all in player held for a pair of eights.
The button held for an open ended straight draw and a flush draw to boot.

When all the chips were accounted for and all the side pots put in place the dealer burned and turned a , Tim West's miracle card. West now had the lead and the angry glares of angry player at the table.
