Kornuth Doubles Through Young

MikePatrick • Level 14: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante
Chance Kornuth

After Justin Young opened for 100,000 in the hijack and Phil Ivey called on the button, Chance Kornuth raised to 1,800,000 in the small blind, leaving himself just over 200,000 behind. Young called and Ivey folded.

Chance Kornuth: {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Justin Young: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Kornuth's queens were well ahead and remained so through the {10-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{9-Clubs} flop which gave Kornuth extra outs in the form of a gutshot straight draw.

The {4-Diamonds} turn changed nothing, but the {8-Spades} on the river gave Kornuth his straight, taking a huge chunk out of Young's stack.
