Cournut Doubles Through Rinaldi

[Removed:133] just reaped the benefits of a failed resteal play made by Claudio Rinaldi and has doubled up to almost one million in chips.

The hand saw action fold around to Brice in the cutoff who made it 105,000 to go. The button and small blind players folded and when it was Claudio's turn to act, he put Brice all in. Brice made a quick call and tabled a pocket pair of jacks, ecstatic to see the hand he was up against -- {10-Diamonds} {3-Hearts}.

The {J-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} flop hit Brice hard, giving him a set, but it also gave Claudio a flush draw and a backdoor straight draw.

The drama didn't last very long, however, as the {K-Hearts} fell on the turn, giving Brice an unbeatable full boat.
