Shawn Schoreck doubled up with JT.

Kou Vang opened to 44,000, and Shawn Schoreck shoved for about 500,000. Vang called immediately.

Vang: {a-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Schoreck: {j-Spades}{10-Spades}

"I'm happy with $21,000," Schoreck said, accepting potential defeat.

It wasn't to be, as the board came {7-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}, giving Schoreck a winning straight.
