Nelson Cracks Aces to Double

dsalituro • Level 30: 80,000-160,000, 160,000 ante
Dustin Nelson

Matt Mamiya and Mourad Amokrane limped in preflop. From the button, Dustin Nelson raised to 660,000 and was called by Matthew Mlsna in the big blind.

Mamiya then announced pot for 2,800,000, Amokrane quickly folded, and Nelson called all in for about 600,000 more. Mlsna also got out of the way.

Dustin Nelson: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Matt Mamiya: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}

Nelson's double-paired hand was trailing the aces of Mamiya as the flop came {10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. "How many spades do you have in that deck," he asked the dealer.

Nelson didn't get a spade on the turn, but he did get the {k-Hearts} to make a set of kings. The river came the {9-Diamonds} and Nelson doubled up. His rail erupted in celebration so loudly that Mamiya asked the tournament floor if the crowd could be cleared.
