Gerald Johnson, Day 3 Level 28

After the confrontation with Joe Palma, Johnson found himself with ~360k. The short stacks today have been getting picked off as well, but this time there was a comeback in the works.

On the very next hand after being crippled, Brian Denight opened to 160k and was shoved on by Johnson for 350k. Hanrahan isolated from the big blind to 600k and got it heads up with Johnson at risk after Denight folded out.

Johnson 8♠5♠ vs A♣K♦ Pot: 950k

Board: J♥4♠9♠10♥6♠

Johnson doubles through after picking up a huge draw on the flop and getting there.

Shortly after, Johnson won a flip against Paul Zurochka with 6x6x vs KQs. That completed the comeback and he is now worked with ~1.8M.
