Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship 

Tom Hu raised from the button and JC Moussa moved in from the big blind.  Tom called, showing A3 suited.  JC had him dominated with A8.  The board came A T 9 7 J and at first the dealer thought it was a chop, but Allan Vrooman pointed out that JC had made a Jack-high straight.  He doubled up to ~800k.

Matthew Erzol (bb) got all-in and called by William Heger (sb).  Matthew held pocket Kings and William held AQ.  The board came K J 3 7 6 and Matthew doubled up to over 800k.  William was left with less than 200k.
