Mizzi's Duck Gets HIm A Double Up

Sorel Mizzi

Action folded all the way around to a short stacked Sorel Mizzi, who moved all in for his last 250,000 in the small blind. Chamath Palihapitiya was in the big blind, and he thought about it for about a minute before making the call. It turned out to be a great call, as he had Mizzi crushed going to the flop.

Mizzi: {9-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Palihapitiya: {k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

Both players stood up and shook hands before the flop, which gave Mizzi a ton of help, coming {10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Mizzi then applied a bit of reverse psychology, asking for a {8-Diamonds} on the turn to make things fair. Well it wasn't that good a card, but the {6-Hearts} that hit the turn gave Palihapitiya some outs for the chop. Again, Mizzi said "Ok let's just take an eight to chop it up." The river brought hte {6-Diamonds}, and Mizzi's deuces held to give him a double to 500,000, while Palihapitiya is knocked down to 600,000.
