Ralph Macri was down to just 8,000 in chips a short while ago, and is now sitting with around 80,000, one of the larger stacks in the room.

According to Macri and a few players at his table, there was one key hand that turned things around for him.

Facing a raise, and a three-bet, Macri called in the small blind, and there were three players to see the 7-5-4 flop. 

Macri shoved all in for his remaining 6,000, the original raiser folded, and the player that had three-bet pre-flop tank called after a few minutes of thinking about it. 

"I hope you have eights," the player said, as he turned over his pocket nines.  Macri indeed turned over pocket eights, and needed to improve. 

The turn was a blank, but the river came a six, giving Macri a straight to more than double up. 

"I have been on a good run since then," Macri said with a smile as he pointed to the large stack of chips in front of him.
