Heinz Spikes to Stay Alive

Pius Heinz reacts to the river card that doubled him up.

John Hewitt opened from under the gun to 650,000 before action folded to Pius Heinz on the button. He reraised all in for 8.06 million. After the two blinds folded, Hewitt snap-called and tabled the {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}. Heinz was all in and at risk with the dominated {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}.

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and Hewitt stayed in front. Heinz did pick up a straight draw and a backdoor flush draw.

The turn was the {6-Hearts} and then the river landed with the {9-Diamonds}, completing the straight for Heinz. With his straight to the jack, Heinz doubled up to 16.81 million. Hewitt was knocked back to 18.18 million.
