Jiang Doubles Through Antonius

KaleGozer • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante
Honglin Jiang

Nicolas Dumont opened in early position to 125,000. Honglin Jiang shoved for 1,100,000 behind him. Patrik Antonius called from the big blind and Dumont quickly tossed {A-Spades}{10-Clubs} in the muck.

Honglin Jiang: {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Patrik Antonius: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

Jiang was at risk at behind and needed a king to keep his hopes at winning an EPT title alive. The {K-Spades} peeped up directly in the window, together with the {6-Clubs} and {3-Clubs} to reduce Antonius to just one out to win.

"That is not a good flop," laughed Antonius. The {6-Diamonds} on the turn wasn't the queen of diamonds he was looking for.

"A queen and a queen only," the Finn said, but the {10-Hearts} on the river secured the double-up for Jiang.
