“The picture will be more exciting when I double,” World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Loni Harwood said after tournament staff grabbed a quick photo of her.

As luck would have it, the double came before she knew it.

Harwood was in the cutoff facing a raise to 14,500. She jammed for her last 77,500 and the button and blinds folded. After a minute or two, the original raiser called and Harwood was at risk.

The flop smacked her opponent falling acjc8s improving him to two pair. The turn 2s left her drawing slim. The river revealed the 9h — one of her two outs — giving her a set and earning her the double.

“Dirty,” she said raking the pot.
