D'Angelo Doubles

Hand #7: Byron Kaverman raised to 110,000 on the button, winning the blinds and antes.

Hand #8: Keven Stammen was on the button, and raised to 100,000. Tony Dunst three-bet to 260,000 from the small blind, and Stammen folded.

Hand #9: Abraham Korotki raised to 115,000 from under the gun, Ryan D'Angelo re-raised to 300,000 from the small blind, and Korotki moved all in. D'Angelo snap-called.

D'Angelo: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Korotki: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}

"Hold up!" Ronit Chamani, D'Angelo's girlfriend yelled from the rail.

D'Angelo was in great shape to double, but Korotki flopped a pair of aces when the dealer fanned {3-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. D'Angelo held the suicide king, however, and could survive with a heart or king on the turn or river.

The turn was the {7-Diamonds}, changing nothing, and there was an extended TV break prior to the river.

"I think it's the seven of hearts," D'Angelo said, casually.

He was incorrect, but the {k-Clubs} was good enough to give him a winning set of kings!

"You like that drama?" D'Angelo called out to Mike Sexton, Vince Van Patten, and the rest of the people railing the final table.

He doubled to over three million chips, while Korotki is down to 10 big blinds.
