William Tonking Doubles

Andrey Zaichenko raised the hijack to 125,000 and William Tonking came over the top to 305,000 from the next seat over.

Action trickled around to Brian Roberts in the big blind who looked at his cards and went into the tank for about 90 seconds. He announced a four-bet to 720,000, prompting a quick fold from Zaichenko. It took Tonking about one minute to move all in for 3.23 million total, putting the pressure back on Roberts. Roberts called and the hands were exposed.

Tonking: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Roberts: {J-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Tonking held a commanding lead before the flop and looked primed to score a huge double up. The flop came down {6-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, keeping Tonking's cowboys out in front. The {9-Diamonds} dropped down on the turn, meaning Roberts needed to catch one of the two remaining jacks to score the elimination. The river was the {10-Hearts}, ensuring that Tonking would score the double up.

Tonking is now second in chips at this table with 6.695 million. Roberts, on the other hand, has dropped to 1.805 million in chips.
