Mizzi Doubles; Players on Break

[user101598] • Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Sorel Mizzi

Jason Lavallee opened to 80,000 on the button, Simon Higgins moved all in for just over a million from the small blind, and Sorel Mizzi called all-in for 725,000 in the big blind. Lavallee looked back at his cards one more time, then folded.

Higgins: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Mizzi: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}

There was a ten in the window of the flop, but it was followed by a queen - {q-Spades}{9-Spades}{10-Hearts}. Neither the turn ({7-Diamonds}) nor the river ({k-Diamonds}) improved Higgins' hand, and Mizzi doubled to 1.545 million chips.

Higgins fell to around 300,000, but shoved the next hand on the button and collected the blinds and antes.

The players are now on a 15-minute break.
