Scott Scores an Early Double Up

ajlamers • Level 43: 2,000,000-4,000,000, 4,000,000 ante

The action folded to James Scott, the short stack at the table, who shoved all in for 13,500,000 in the cutoff. Jeff Loiacono called on the button and the blinds quickly folded.

James Scott: {a-Spades}{9-Spades}
Jeff Loiacono: {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}

It turned out to be a coin flip and the flop of {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} gave Scott the lead with a pair of aces. The {3-Diamonds} on the turn and the {j-Clubs} on the river changed nothing as Scott scored an early double up.
