Paez Doubles Into the Chip Lead

We stumbled upon a monster hand with 40,000 already in the middle with a flop reading {Q-Clubs}{K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}. Part of that 40,000 was from a bet Nikolay Volper had made (it was already pulled in), but Raul Paez has raised him all in, which was another 34,500 in front of him.

Volper thought for a long time and held up {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{4-Clubs} for all to see. After about four minutes in the tank, Volper made the call and discovered he was far behind the {K-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{a-Hearts} of Paez. Neither the {5-Spades} turn nor {5-Hearts} river changed a thing and Paez doubled into the chip lead.
