Four players saw a flop of with at least 12,000 in the middle and everybody checked to David Larson, who was in the hijack and bet 4,500. Only one player called from early position and action proceeded heads up to the turn .
The early-position player checked again and Larson gathered his remaining 7,300 and put it into the middle. His opponent thought for a bit and then took 7,500 worth of chips and called.
Larson's top pair, top kicker was ahead of his opponent's open-ended straight draw and the river kept his kings best to earn him the double and then some. With the pot, Larson now finds himself at 42,000 after spending most of the day thus far below starting stack.
