Jacks Kind to Giannetti

[user101598]
Matt Giannetti doubles up.

Pius Heinz opened to 1.1 million from middle position, Ben Lamb three-bet to 3.1 million on his direct left, and the action folded to Matt Giannetti who moved all in for 8.4 million on the button. The blinds released, Heinz folded, and Lamb made the call.

Showdown

Lamb: {k-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Giannetti: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

Everyone was on their feet, calling for various cards as the flop fell {10-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}.

"Running hearts!" one of Lamb's railbirds shouted.

Not only was the turn a heart, it was the {7-Hearts}, giving Lamb outs to a straight as well.

"Aching heart! Aching heart! Aching heart!" was the chant from the rail.

Giannetti's jacks held once gain as the {a-Spades} bricked on the river, doubling him to 19 million chips.
