Marafioti Dodges Paint To Double Up


Matt Marafioti has been grinding the short stack for quite some time on the feature table, and he finally got the double up he was looking for.

Chanracy Khun started the action by raising to 20,000 in middle position. Marafioti was next to act, and he moved all in for 103,000. It folded around to Khun, and after about 20 seconds of thought, he tossed in the call.

Khun: {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Marafioti: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

The flop came down {2-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}, which kept Marafioti in the lead but gave Khun a straight draw as well. Any paint would do for Khun, but he didn't get it on the turn, the {6-Clubs}, or the river, the {4-Hearts}.

Marafioti let out a big sigh of relief and pumped his fist as he got the double up to 229,000, while Khun drops to 242,000.
