Diaz Gets a Double Up From Cimbolas

gaellej • Level 15: Blinds 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

David Diaz raised in the hijack and called a three-bet from Matas Cimbolas in the small blind.

The flop fanned {8-Spades}{4-Clubs}{k-Spades} and Cimbolas bet 35,000. After some thinking, Diaz called and both opted to check on the {7-Diamonds} turn.

The river showed a {10-Diamonds} and Cimbolas checked. Diaz decided to bet 60,000 and Cimbolas tanked a few minutes before announcing all in, putting Diaz at risk for a remaining stack of 258,000.

Diaz snap-called and Cimbolas tabled {k-Hearts}{j-Spades}, which wasn't good enough as Diaz held {10-Hearts}{10-Spades} for a set on the river to double up.
