Make This Smirnov a Double


Dan Smith limped in on the button and Mikhail Smirnov announced a raise from the big blind, although the amount was unheard and unknown. Smith announced, "Pot," and reraised to put Smirnov all in. The Russian called and the cards were tabled.

Smirnov: {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Smith: {K-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}

The flop came down {Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} and Smirnov took the lead with a pair of tens. The turn was the {7-Spades} to pair the board and the river completed the board with the {5-Hearts}. From the flop on, Smirnov held up and doubled up. He was all in for an announced amount of 417,000 and now has 834,000 in chips.
