Grecu Doubles in Dramatic Fashion

HillKerby • Level 9: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

Action was heads up before the flop with the player on the button having 8,000 in front of him and a decision to make for even more chips as Virgil Grecu was all in from the big blind. The player took about a minute to think and then made the call.

Virgil Grecu: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

A queen came in the window as the flop fell {5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} to give the player on the button one of his needed three outs to pull ahead. The turn {3-Hearts} left Grecu with one chance to double, and he knew the odds were against him as he began to push his seat back to get ready to stand up and leave the tournament area. He didn't get far, however, as the river fell {k-Diamonds} before he could scoot back much at all, giving him two pair, kings and threes, to earn the double over his opponent's queens up.
