"Ooh, A Piece of Candy!"

• Level 3: 50-100, 0 ante
James Woods found a piece of candy on the river to stay alive

During the recent break James Woods - a legendary actor of the silver screen who also lends his voice to a Family Guy character based on himself - filled us in on a miraculous suckout he scored to keep himself in the tournament.

According to Woods, he held {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs} with the board showing a king, a queen, and two spades by the turn. Woods knew he was drawing extremely thin, needing to spike the only non-spade deuce in the deck, but with a short stack and most of his chips already in the pot, he went for the gusto.

Sure enough, his two opponent's showed down a pair and a flush draw, respectively, but the {2-Diamonds} materialized on the river to send the pot Woods' way. With his ever-present smile now even wider, Woods received an unlikely second chance, and the affable actor now has a replenished stack with which to work.
