Santoro Doubles; Vasta Crippled

Action began when Amerigo Santoro moved all in for his last 480,000 from early position. It folded to Carmelo Vasta who moved all in over the top from the button. The blinds folded and Santoro was at risk.

Santoro: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}
Vasta: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}

The flop was {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{7-Spades} and Santoro was still in need of help. The {7-Hearts} on the turn was not that help. However, the room let out a collective gasp when the {K-Hearts} hit the river, pairing Santoro and scoring him a double up. He's now sitting at about 1 million while Vasta has been crippled to only 80,000.
