John Juanda Doubles Through Vince Musso

Ville Wahlbeck opened for 35,000, Vince Musso three-bet to 155,000 and John Juanda moved all in for 301,000 total. Wahlbeck folded and Musso made the call. Juanda stood pat while Musso drew two.

Juanda turned up 9-7-5-3-2, crushing Musso's A-6-5-4-2 to double up to nearly 650,000.

Schulman Fires Away

Now that we're down to one table, the players don't seem to mind picking up the action. The third hand of the final table was played multi-way, with Nick Schulman opening to 30,000 and being called by both blinds, Vince Musso and John Juanda.

On the draw, Musso took one, Juanda took two, and Schulman took one.

Musso and Juanda checked it to Schulman after the draw was complete. He took his time to count out a bet of 90,000 that was enough to win the pot.
