Musumeci Doubles In Dramatic Fashion

Uh-oh! I doubled up!

After several hands of raises preflop taking the pot down, Ashkan Razavi raised to 200,000 from the button and Amanda Musumeci announced that she was all in. Razavi quickly announced a call and the rail went absolutely nuts.

Razavi: {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Musumeci: {J-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

The flop brought nothing but backdoor draws for Musumeci, coming {Q-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{6-Hearts}. The adrenaline quickly started pumping, however, when the {9-Diamonds} came on fourth street, giving Musumeci any jack, seven, ten, or diamond for a win.

The dealer pounded the table and the audience hung in suspense. The river card was turned over:

The {8-Diamonds}.

Musumeci was able to make her diamond flush and double up through Razavi, keeping her hopes of being the first woman to win an open event since Vanessa Selbst won a bracelet in 2008.
