Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Take it Down, Amnon

Amnon Filippi was in early position when he opened it up to 16,000. Marty Zabib then three-bet to 35,000 from the button and Filippi made the call.

Flop: {5-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts}

Filippi checked here and Zabib bet 115,000. Filippi started thinking deeply and Gavin Smith, who was a few tables away, shouted out, "Take it down Amnon!"

"Would you shut the f**k up," snapped back Filippi. "This is for my tournament life here."

After some more thinking, Filippi moved all in for 419,000. His opponent called and the two players turned their hands over.

Filippi: {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
Zabib: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

Filippi had a set of fives and would be doubling up as long as he dodged a few cards. The {q-Spades} turn was safe and so was the {6-Spades} and Filippi raked in the double up.
