Yu Hits an Ace from Space

ajlamers • Level 23: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Ben Yu ripped all in for 1,210,000 on the button with {a-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Brian Rast re-shoved over the top in the small blind after looking at {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. Ali Imsirovic got out of the way and the cards were on their backs.

The flop came {j-Clubs}{8-Spades}{4-Clubs} making it an uphill climb for Yu to stay alive. The {q-Clubs} landed on the turn which changed nothing but the {a-Spades} on the river was exactly what Yu was looking for. Yu scored a huge double up to leave Rast on the short stack.
