2010 World Series of Poker

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

Hand #139: Racener Doubles through Mizrachi

[user75032]
Michael Mizrachi and John Racener

Filippo Candio has the button in Seat 8.

Michael Mizrachi raises to 2.5 million as the first player to act. John Racener re-raises all in for 9,825,000 more as the next player to act. Action quickly folds back to Mizrachi.

The theater gets to a preternatural level of quiet (if you ignore the elementary-school shushing that once again hisses around the house). Grinder leans back in his seat slightly and steals a glance at Racener, who has got to be smacking on the same piece of gum that he was to start the day. After two full minutes Mizrachi calls!

Showdown
Mizrachi: {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Racener: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

For the first time in a few hours we have an all-in situation where one player is at a significant disadantage. The flop connects with neither player, {2-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{2-Spades}, though it does give Mizrachi some chop outs. A {k-Clubs} on the turn ends any hope for a chop; it pairs Racener's king and gives him an unbeatable hand. He doubles up after the river falls {j-Hearts}.

Racener's been laboring all day. Is this the boost he needs to get back in the game?
