Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Brikis Needed That One

Josh Brikis has just found the first of a few double ups he'll need if he's to climb back into contention.

David Assouline opened to 125,000 before Brikis got his last 285,000 chips in there with {7-Clubs} {7-Hearts}. He was in good shape when Assouline turned over {A-Hearts} {4-Diamonds}, and he was able to dodge the aces in the deck to boot. The board ran {K-Hearts} {Q-Spades} {9-Clubs} {7-Spades} {5-Clubs}, and Brikis has doubled his way up close to 800,000.
