Silberstein Doubles Again The Very Next Hand

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

Wow. Ken Silberstein has doubled up two straight hands in a row.

Fresh off of his double from Jonas Wexler, Silberstein three-bet out of the small blind after Leonardo Palmero opened with a raise. Palmero four-bet to an unknown amount and Silberstein came right back over the top all in for 1.189 million. Palmero called.

Palermo: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
Silberstein: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}

The table was astounded at Silberstein's aces followed immediately after his kings. Players stood up and walked around and the crowd went nuts.

"I'm going to use my one time RIGHT now," exclaimed Silberstein.

The dealer fanned {7-Clubs}{9-Spades}{J-Hearts} on the felt and Silberstein retained his lead. Palermo picked up and open-ended straight draw on the turn when the {10-Spades} hit, but could not hit any of his outs as the {4-Hearts} finished off the board.

In just two hands last year's runner-up has become our new chip leader with about 2.4 million. Palermo, on the other hand, has been crippled.
