Sanchez Spikes to Double

BrandonBloom • Level 35: 250,000-500,000, 250,000 ante
Diego Sanchez

Diego Sanchez had previously picked up some pots without showdowns to gain some chips. He moved all in for his 5,725,000 in the small blind and Jinho Hong called in the big blind.

Diego Sanchez: {a-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Jinho Hong: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

The large crowd of spectators eagerly awaited the runout as the dealer spread the {8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop, and Hong's rail started to get louder. However, they were instantly drowned out by Sanchez's rail as the {a-Hearts} hit the felt on the turn to vault Sanchez ahead, and the {7-Spades} completed the board to secure his double.
