Sousa Spikes Runner Runner to Double


On the last hand before dinner break at his table, Hilton Laborda raised to 40,000 in the cutoff and Fabio Sousa moved all in for 244,000 from the big blind and Laborda made the call.

Laborda: {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}
Sousa: {A-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Sousa was racing for his tournament life but was in awful shape after the {6-Spades}{5-Clubs}{7-Clubs} flop came down as he needed running straight or flush cards plus the board not to pair to survive. The {9-Clubs} on the turn was the best card in the deck for Sousa as it gave him both flush and straight outs now. The river was the {4-Clubs} and Sousa nailed his flush to double up
