Finstein Finds a Double

[user68268] • Level 23: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

From under the gun, Michael Finstein raised to 60,000. Peter Placey was a few seats over and reraised to 160,000. When play folded back to Finstein, he made the call.

The flop was {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{4-Spades}, and Finstein check-called a bet of 300,000 to see the {7-Clubs} land on the turn. After Finstein checked fourth street, Placey moved all in, having Finstein's remaining 872,000 covered. Finstein called and put himself at risk with the {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}. Placey was behind with the {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}.

The river completed the board with the {A-Diamonds}, giving Finstein two pair, and doubling him up to over 2.7 million in chips. Placey was clipped back to 1.075 million.
