Hand #289: Balsiger Doubles Again

[user101598] • Level 40: 600,000-1,200,000, 200,000 ante
Jake Balsiger pumps his fist as he sees he is going to double up.

Jesse Sylvia started the hand with the button. He raised to 2.4 million, Jake Balsiger moved all in for around 17 million, and Greg Merson folded. Sylvia tank-called.

Balsiger: {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Sylvia: {a-Spades}{10-Hearts}

Chants of "Shaun The Dealer" filled the Penn & Teller Theater as the flop fell {2-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Balsiger's fans shouted at the sight of the king, while Sylvia's rail went silent.

The {k-Diamonds} on the turn sealed the deal, and after the {4-Spades} completed the board, Balsiger's stack was counted down. He is now flirting with 40 million chips.
