Allan Sannier was standing on the rail talking to two of his friends and missed his big blind. With some death money in the pot, Adrian Mateos was first to act and raised to 14,000. His neighbor Davidi Kitai shoved all in for 87,500 and action folded back to Mateos. The Spanish EPT champion called. The cards remained closed till the hand at the other table was done.

"I have it." Kitai said, followed by: "I don't want to see 5-6 suited"

As the hand on the other table was done, it was time for the showdown:

Davidi Kitai: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}
Adrian Mateos: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

Kitai's partner ran to the table and started rooting for him: "As! As! As!" ("Ace! Ace! Ace!")

The flop came {4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{4-Spades} and the turn was the {9-Clubs}.

"Deux! Deux! Deux!" ("Two! Two! Two!") said Kitai's partner.

The {9-Spades} hit and Kitai doubled up. Besides 87,500 in chips times two plus the blinds and antes, he received a peck on the cheek.
