Huge Doubles for Hall as Kings Hold

donpeters • Level 34: 150,000-300,000, 25,000 ante
Galen Hall

The hand following the one where he doubled Galen Hall, Chris Oliver raised to 750,000 from the button with the {A-Hearts}{9-Spades}. Hall reraised to 1.9 million holding the {K-Clubs}{K-Spades} and this one looked like it might get big given that Oliver just doubled Hall on the last hand. Indeed, Oliver came back over the top with a four-bet to 4.3 million. Hall studied for a bit and then five-bet for just about the minimum. Oliver quickly shoved and Hall snapped him off.

The pot was worth just shy of 40 million and Hall would earn a commanding chip lead if he were to win this hand. The flop was first and it rolled out {8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} to keep Hall's kings in front. Oliver still was looking for an ace on the turn or river to win the event.

The turn brought the {4-Spades} and now just an ace was needed for Oliver to end the event. The {Q-Hearts} fell on the river and that did it, Hall earned the double up. He moved to just about 40 million while Oliver dropped to under seven million.
