An Angel on His Shoulder

Angel Guillen scores another dramatic double

Team PokerStars Pro Angel Guillen has been relatively card dead for a majority of the day. In the first pot that we've seen him active, action folded around to his small blind and he moved all in for roughly 250,000. Ivan Luca called from the big blind and the hands were tabled:

Guillen: {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Luca: {Q-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

The flop brought {6-Spades}{8-Spades}{8-Clubs} and Guillen was still in the lead. The turn spelled heartbreak for Guillen, however, coming the {7-Diamonds} and pairing Luca. The room gasped and Guillen's head dropped. With one cards to come, Guillen was looking for one of the three remaining tens or the four remaining nines to make a straight.

The dealer rapped the table and burned a card. She grabbed the top card on the deck and flipped it over.

The {10-Clubs}!

Guillen paired his ten and the room erupted into cheers and applause. This double up keeps up hope for all those adorned with a red spade logo.
