Shak Doubles; Stein Dashed to Bits

EricRamsey

Dan Shak opened the pot to 33,000, and Sam Stein defended his big blind to go heads-up to the flop. It came {2-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {6-Clubs}, and Stein check-called 50,000. On the turn {10-Clubs}, Shak bet another 100,000, but this time Stein check-raised all in. He had the bigger stack — but just barely — so the move put Shak to the decision for his last 374,000 chips. Snap-call! Cards up:

Shak: {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs}
Stein: {A-Spades} {10-Hearts}

Shak only had to fade five outs once, and the {4-Clubs} river was safe and sound. With the double, Shak has moved up over 900,000, while Stein has been crippled down to just a big blind plus a couple antes.
