Event #22: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold'em

Legat's Shove Saves Craig From Elimination

• Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante

After Scott Vener raised to 500,000, Brian Craig three-bet shoved from the next seat over, and action folded to Simon Legat in the small blind who then four-bet shoved. When action folded back around to Vener he said, "I know I'm gonna hit a five," and folded {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs} face up. The players tabled their hands and Craig needed his small pair to hold against Legat's two paint cards.

Brian Craig: {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}
Simon Legat: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

The flop came {7-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, which caused Vener to sigh, and the {7-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} completed the board, giving Craig the double-up. Afterward, Vener remarked that he would have definitely called Craig's all-in if Legat hadn't re-shoved.
