If you've traveled the World Series of Poker Circuit at all, then you've certainly heard of Roland Israel.

Israel has over $1 million in live career tournament earnings, and is in the field today.

The river was the {7-Diamonds}, and Israel's opponent led out. Israel raised immediately, and his opponent tank-called. Israel rolled over {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} for the nuts, and his opponent unhappily mucked.
