Silberstein Doubles Huge; Cripples Wexler

Josh_Cahlik • Level 26: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Action folded to Jonas Wexler's small blind. He completed and Ken Silberstein raised to 50,000 from the big blind. Wexler said that he was all in and Silberstein snapped him off.

Wexler: {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Silberstein: {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}

At the sight of Wexler's ace, Silberstein immediately dashed out of the tournament area. The dealer spread out {10-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and Silberstein flopped top set. The {7-Hearts} came out on the turn and Silberstein clinched his grip on the hand.

"You're good, Ken" someone yelled as he walked back in the tournament area.

The dealer dealt the meaningless {J-Spades} on the river and Mike Jukich and Rex Clinkscales let out yells as if something crazy happened in an effort to trick Silberstein.

"I don't believe you!" Silberstein said with a grin as he walked back into the tournament area. He now has about 1.19 million in chips.
