Joe Serock survives by the skin of his teeth

Shooting Star Joe Serock was all in and behind with [7h][7d] against Mukul Pahuja's [Th][Tc].  As the WPT cameras came to the table, the dealer spread the [5d][9d][6c] flop.  Joe calmly placed his [7d] above the flop, implying he'd like to see an eight on the turn.  Instead, the [Qd] fell, and Matt Savage announced to the crowd that Joe had now picked up a flush draw as well.  When the [4d] hit the river, a surprised Joe counted down his stack of 20,400.  He will double up and survive with 2 levels to go in Day 1A.
