Ace in the Door

Under the gun, Claudio Rinaldi moves all in for right around 1,000,000 chips. Tesseire and Roy fold, and action is on Stephane Bazin in the big blind, who calmly says, "Call," as he turns over {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}. Rinaldi doesn't seem too upset as he tables {A-?} {3-?}.

Right in the door comes the {A-Spades}, and the board fills out with {K-Spades} {2-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {8-Diamonds}, doubling Rinaldi up on a big outdraw. He has moved up close to the 2,000,000 mark, while Bazin has dropped to about 1,400,000. Chips are flying around the table right now with these huge blinds and antes.
