Oliveira Finds a Fortunate Double

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Jake Schwartz raised to 105,000 from under the gun with {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} and Filipe Oliveira three-bet shoved all in for 715,000 on his left with {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. Griffin Benger woke up with {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} in the cutoff and re-shoved for 1,935,000. The action folded back to Schwartz who gave up his cards after giving it some deliberation.

The flop came {a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{8-Clubs} to give Oliveira the best hand despite being a huge underdog. The turn was the {10-Hearts} and the river brought the {10-Diamonds} as Oliveira scored himself a double up.
