Fish Swims To A Double On The River

We missed most of the preflop raising, but when we went over to Darryll Fish's table we noticed that he was all-in in the small blind for around 80,000, and that the player in the big blind, James Guinther, had made the call. The cards were flipped up, and Fish was crushed going to the flop.

Fish: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Guinther: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}

The flop came {7-Spades}{k-Spades}{10-Diamonds}, pairing Guinther but giving Fish an extra out, as he now needed one of four jacks in the deck. The turn was no help, coming the {4-Clubs}, but the {j-Spades} slammed down on the river, giving Fish the broadway straight and the win. Fish did a spastic shake after hitting the card, and shook his head in disbelief as the chips were being pushed towards him. "I wasn't planning on geting my money in that bad. Its been a while since that has happened to me." Regardless of how long its been, Fish will gladly take the double up, as his stack is now up to 180,000.
