Event #19: Millionaire Maker - $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Aces of Spades River Leads to Two Doubles

• Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

Hand 1:

William Corvino jammed for 176,000 from middle position, and Ryan Brown three-bet shoved for 552,000 on the button, chasing out the blinds.

William Corvino: {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Ryan Brown: {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}

Corvino added a few outs when the {10-Spades}{5-Clubs}{10-Hearts} paired his five, but the {2-Spades} turn left him looking for an ace or five to survive.

"Oooh, Barry Greenstein!" Corvino, who had already began to turn away from the table, said when he caught a glimpse of the {a-Spades} river, and he doubled up.

Hand 2:

Timothy Chung raised to 100,000 from under the gun, leaving himself just 45,000 behind. Wook Kim three-bet to 235,000 in middle position and action folded back to Chung, who called off his stack.

Timothy Chung: {a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Wook Kim: {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Chung would get no help on the {3-Hearts}{k-Spades}{4-Clubs} flop or {10-Hearts} turn, but as the title to this post alluded, the {a-Spades} hit the river, doubling Chung up.
