Admon Doubles Again

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

Korey Payne raised to 500,000 on the button and received a call from Salim Admon, defending his big blind. The flop fell {j-Spades}{8-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Admon checked. Payne fired a continuation-bet of 800,000 and Admon called, bringing the turn {6-Clubs} where Admon check-called a second barrel of 1.5 million from Payne.

The river came {10-Hearts} and Admon shoved all in. Payne immediately called.

Salim Admon: {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Korey Payne: {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

Payne had flopped a set of treys but the river gave Admon a straight and earned him the double to chip away at Payne's chip lead and accumulate nearly 40% of the chips in play.
