Jukich Wins Race to Double

Josh_Cahlik • Level 29: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Action folded to Mike Jukich's small blind. He shipped all in for 925,000 and Silberstein surprised the room when he picked up his cards, looked at them, and announced a call.

Jukich: {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Silberstein: {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}

Jukich jumped into the lead by pairing up on the {J-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop. Suddenly Silberstein needed to catch in order to send Jukich to the rail. He did not on the {A-Hearts} turn or the {9-Clubs} river, ensuring that Jukich would double to about 1.85 million.
