Silvestri Doubles; Gets One-Round Penalty

Philipp Gruissem raised to 130,000 from middle position and was met with an all-in reraise to 460,000 by Mario Silvestri on the button. The blinds got out of the way and action was back on Gruissem. He thought for a few moments before saying, "I have a really bad hand."

At that point, Silvestri flipped over his {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}. "What are you doing?" asked Gruissem.

"I thought you said call," Silvestri responded with a bit of confusion in his voice. After seeing his opponent's hand, that is exactly what Gruissem did.

Gruissem: {K-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}
Silvestri: {5-Clubs}{5-Spades}

Gruissem knew he'd be flipping if he called, so he obviously decided it was a good time to race. The {9-Spades}{A-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop kept Silvestri ahead, as did the {Q-Clubs} turn. In order to eliminated his opponent, Gruissem needed to catch either a king or six on the river. Luckily for Silvestri, the {5-Hearts} appeared an he doubled.

On the flip side of things, Silvestri also received a one-round penalty for prematurely exposing his cards.
