Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

First Hand Brings Huge Double-Up For Sokoloff

zedmaster84 • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Will Givens just arrived and checked in at the secondary table with the lunch in his hand. Paul Sokoloff had moved all in from the button and one seat over, Terik Brown was all in as well. Loren Klein folded the big blind and they were off to a race:

Brown: {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}
Sokoloff: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

After the {J-Spades}{2-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop, Brown said to the dealer "give me a queen, come on you can do it." His request was denied, however, as the board completed with the {4-Hearts} turn and the {6-Hearts} river, and Sokoloff earned the double-up.
