Shields Doubles Once Again

LaneAnderson • Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Edison Shields

Edison Shields has doubled up for the third time today and has yet to cross the 500,000 mark in chips. Mustapha Kanit raised to 48,000 in middle position, Ted Gillis called two seats to his left, and Edison Shields pushed 176,000 all in from the small blind. Kanit let go of his hand, but Gillis called.

Gillis: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Shields: {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

The race was on, and things got even scarier for Shields on the suited flop. The board ran out {3-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Spades}{7-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and Shields secured the double up.
