Awkward Moment after Elizabeth Doubles


Shannon Elizabeth snap called from the big blind after a player moved all in from early position. Her {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} were looking great against {a-Spades}{4-Spades} but Elizabeth wasn't confident.

"I'm going to walk away. I can't watch," said Elizabeth.

The flop came {2-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Spades}, giving Elizabeth's opponent a straight flush draw. With Elizabeth calling for a red king, the turn came {2-Clubs} and river fell {q-Hearts}. Elizabeth's aces held to eliminate her opponent.

"Wow, what a sweat that was," said Phil Gordon. "Shannon Elizabeth can do it!"

Everyone looked at Gordon curiously.
