Hamad Cripples Vang in Sick Runout

mnuwwarah • Level 20: 20,000-40,000, 4,000 ante
Kou Vang flopped a set but lost anyway.

Fadi Hamad shoved 537,000 when action folded to his button, and Kou Vang called in the big blind.

Vang: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Hamad: {a-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}

The flop came {q-Hearts}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts}, and Hamad was dead to runner-runner. The turn brought hope in the form of the {4-Hearts}, and the three non-heart sixes would give Hamad the pot. Amazingly, the {6-Spades} fell, and Vang was left with just 71,000, which he doubled up the next hand when his {10-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} outdrew John Simon's {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}.
