Event 12: Finkelstein Doubles

$170 + $30 Deep Stack Double Play NLH (2 Re-entry) 

Apparently my motivational skills are impressive.  Jeff Finkelstein is up to 2.9 million and second in chips.  During the break, he recounted for me how he doubled up.

Action had folded to him in the small blind and he opened for 105k.  The big blind flat-called.  On the flop of K 7 7, Jeff checked, his opponent bet 165k, and Jeff called.  Turn was a blank and Jeff led out for 150k.  The big blind just flatted again.  River was another blank and Jeff shoved, getting the call. 

The big blind showed pocket Aces.  Jeff had 72 suited for trip 7s to take the pot and chip way up to 2.9 million.

At the end of the level, players took a break while the orange 1k chips were colored up.
