One hand after doubling through Shooting Start Craig Varnell, fellow Shooting Star Phil Hui moves back in, this time for 165,000 and Varnell once again makes the call.

Varnell quickly tables [7h] [7d], sees Hui table his cards and says, "Oh come on!" when Hui shows [Ad] [Ac].

[Jd] [8c] [Jc] goes the flop, the turn [9h] giving Varnell an open-ended draw, the river [6c] giving Hui back-to-back doubles to move to 335,000.

Varnell 'slips' to 1.2 million
