Mizrachi Doubles Through Nevanlinna; Seizes Chip Lead

Michael Mizrachi raised to 10,000 and Jussi Nevanlinna called from next door. The rest of the table folded and the flop came down {Q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}.

Mizrachi checked and Nevanlinna bet 15,000. Mizrachi made it 45,000 to go and Nevanlinna three-bet all in.

The word "call" could not come out of Mizrachi's mouth fast enough as he tabled {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for top set and the second nut diamond draw. Nevanlinna showed {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{5-Spades} for the nut diamond draw and was in dire need of help to send Mizrachi home.

The turn was a diamond, filling up Nevanlinna's flush. Unfortunately for Nevanlinna, it was the {9-Diamonds}, which paired the board and gave Mizrachi a full house of queens full of nines. The board finished with the {2-Hearts} and Mizrachi was able to score a key double up which catapulted him into the top chip position. Nevanlinna, who was our chip leader, has severely fallen due to this massive hit.
