Frank Sinopoli raised to 110,000 from early position only to have Nelson Robinson three-bet to 255,000 from middle position. Action folded back around to Sinopoli and he simply moved all in for 1.65 million. Robinson snap-called and it appeared Sinopoli was in big trouble
Robinson had the granddaddy of all hands and Sinopoli happened to have second best. The flop didn't change a thing, and neither did the turn. In order to survive, Sinopoli needed one of the two remaining kings on the river, which had just a 5% chance of happening.
Apparently that was all Sinopoli needed as the spiked! Sinopoli jumped from his chair and let out a boisterous, "Yeah, baby!" His rail was equally excited and the subdued Amazon Room suddenly came to life as shouts of cheers echoed off the walls.
Sinopoli doubled his stack to 3.38 million on the hand while Robinson dropped to 1.1 million.
