2012 World Series of Poker

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

Balkin Doubles

David Balkin was just all in for about 1 million and at risk with {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} versus Filippi's {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}. "Do your job, dealer," said the Australian as he stood from the table, hoping to see a king, queen, or some other community cards that would improve his hand.

The flop satisfied Balkin's request, coming {5-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{7-Hearts} to pair his queen, and he clapped his hands. "Come on, hold," he said. The turn was the {10-Clubs} and river the {6-Diamonds}, and Balkin survives.
