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

Steven Finds Double Up Number One

Jason Senti raised to 700,000 from the button, and Brandon Steven moved all in for 2.550 million from the small blind. When it came back to Senti, he hemmed and hawed but quickly called to put Steven at risk for his tournament life. Ah, but he was in good shape:

Senti: {K-Hearts} {10-Diamonds}
Steven: {A-Clubs} {K-Clubs}

The flop was {Q-Spades} {5-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} to keep Steven in the lead, and he paired up on the {A-Spades} river. His cheering section erupted, but it actually helped Senti in the fact that it gave him four outs to the win instead of three. A jack would end Steven's Main Event, but the safe {6-Hearts} rivered to secure his double up and put him back in contention.

Steven is back up to 5.64 million thanks to that double dip. He'll likely need to do that at least once more if he's to survive Day 8.
