WSOP National Championship

Failla Finds A Big Double Up


Action started with a player in early position raising to 2,600. Michael Souza was in middle position, and he made it 6,000 to go. Will "The Thrill" Failla called out of the big blind, and the original raiser made the call too. The flop came down {4-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{7-Hearts}, and all three players checked. The turn cane the {k-Diamonds}, and the fireworks started.

The original raiser checked, as did Souza, and Failla fired out 7,000. The first player folded, but Michael Souza responded by moving all in. Failla instantly called, and Souza was drawing dead.

Souza: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Failla: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

The meaningless river was the {2-Clubs}, and Failla collected the big double up to 93,000, while Souza was crippled to 6,000.
