Rabinowitz Cracks Kings to Double Big

Chad_Holloway • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante
Darren Rabinowitz

Ami Barer opened for 120,000 and received a call from Andrew Phaedonos. Darren Rabinowitz then moved all in from the small blind, the big folded, and Barer wasted little time in making the call. Phaedonos got out of the way and the cards were turned up.

Barer: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Rabinowitz: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Phaedonos informed his friends on the rail that he had folded an ace, which meant there were just two left in the deck. The odds were against Rabinowitz, but that didn't stop him from taking the lead when the {5-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{a-Clubs} flop delivered him one of those aces.

Rabinowitz's rail, which includes reigning World Series of Poker Main Event champ Ryan Riess, went wild for their man while Phaedonos' rail, who are no doubt hoping their man would move up the pay ladder, were vocally disappointed.

Neither the {5-Spades} turn nor {2-Spades} river changed a thing and Rabinowitz doubled through Barer.
