Zhukov Spikes the River to Doubles Through Cousineau

Viacheslav Zhukov

Action folded around to Roch Cousineau in the small blind and he raised to 85,000. Viacheslav Zhukov was in the big and opted to three-bet to 255,000, which Cousineau called.

When the flop came down {J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs}, Cousineau bet pot and Zhukov said, "I have to call," and called all in.

Zhukov: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Cousineau: {7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}

Cousineau was ahead with a pair of sevens when the chips went in, but the running {4-Spades} turn and {Q-Spades} river gave Zhukov a flush and the double. His Russian supporters went wild on the rail as they realized their man, who had been relatively quiet at the final table, was back in it in a big way.
