Zamani Doubles Through the Chip Leader

HillKerby • Level 31: 100,000-200,000, 100,000 ante
Martin Zamani

Martin Zamani opened to 600,000 in the small blind and was three-bet to 1.6 million by Salim Admon in the big blind. Zamani four-bet shoved and Admon quickly called.

"I have a king and a deuce," said Zamani, tabling {k-Spades}{2-Spades}. Admon turned over {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}.

The flop came {6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} to give Zamani a pair of deuces prompting Zamani to ask if he was going to get lucky this time and win the runout. His wishes were granted as the turn {5-Spades} and river {j-Diamonds} made the hand official and his stack of around 8.7 million became double that. With the double, Zamani is now the chip leader with three-handed play still in progress.
