Hall Doubles Through Saul

Level 18 : 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

Kevin Saul raised to 16,000 and one seat over, Galen Hall popped it up to 55,000. Saul inquired about his total stack, then glimpsed at his own. "If I lost that pot, I am still at more than 500,000 chips," he said. Hall replied, "That is a very elusive club, indeed." Saul ended up calling to see a flop of {A-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades}.

Hall called all in for 63,000 and Saul immediately asked him whether or not he had hit the flop. "Yeah," Hall said.

"Well, I didn't," responded Saul.

Saul: {4-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
Hall: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}

The {6-Clubs} on the turn gave Saul a straight and Hall the nut flush; the {6-Hearts} river was already meaningless. "I'm gonna give you all those yellow chips," Saul said before shipping over three stacks of 20xT1000 chips.
