Polk, Chidwick Double

Doug Polk

We didn't see when the money went in, but cash game crusher Doug "WCGRider" Polk just doubled through former chip leader Loren Klein on a board of {2-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{a-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. Polk held {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{2-Spades} for aces up, while Klein had {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for a bricked combo draw and an overpair.

At another table, well-known British pro Stephen Chidwick doubled up to 37,000 with a set of kings against a hand we didn't see.
