Shakerchi Rivers a Double Up

• Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Talal Shakerchi ripped all in for his last 1,800,000 in early position with {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. Griffin Benger asked for a count after looking down at {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} in the hijack and made the call to put Shakerchi at risk.

The flop fell {k-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts} to give Shakerchi some hope with a flush draw. The {6-Spades} on the turn changed nothing as Benger was still in the lead. However, the {9-Spades} gave Shakerchi a pair and a full double up.
