Welcome Back, Dimitri Nobles!

The UpForPoker guys might be all over this, but I thought I'd try and get to this first. It appears that the Luckbox is still Strong with this one, if this hand history from today's $5k Shootout at the WSOP is any indication:

A Noble Suckout

A player under the gun raised to 875 and another player in middle position called. Dimitri Nobles reraised all in and the under-the-gun player also went all in over the top. The middle-position player called.

UTG had {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}
MP had {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}
Nobles had {A-Spades}{6-Spades}

The board ran out {9-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts}{8-Spades}{Q-Hearts} and the turned flush tripled up Nobles and put a serious dent in the other stacks.

UPDATE: should mention that the above excerpt was taken from PokerNews' excellent coverage of the WSOP.
