Takeshi Doubles Up


Takeshi Shioji is still alive and well after doubling off Carlos Chang.

Pre-flop, the smaller stacked Takeshi shoved all-in from the small blind with {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} and got a caller in big blind Carlos, who showed {a-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}.

Carlos was ahead with ace high but Takeshi hit on the flop of {9-Spades}{q-Spades}{8-Diamonds} to take the lead.

The turn ended any speculation as the {k-Hearts} showed up to give Takeshi two-pair and leave Carlos drawing dead.
