Pre-flop, Willy moved all in with {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and got a call from Jeon who turned over {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}.

The board {7-?}{4-?}{10-?}{4-?}{10-?} gave Willy a full house to increase his stack to more than twice than it was before.

Jeon Seung Soo has just added to his big stack after moving all in.

After the flop {10-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}, Jeon pushed all in and moved away from the table prompting a warning advising him to protect his hand.

But there was no caller so the pot was pushed in his direction.
