Corey Wright

Start-of-the-day chip leader Corey Wright was down to 9,500,000 and raised it up first to act. Robert Valden reraised from the big blind to put Wright at risk and the latter got it in.

Corey Wright: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Robert Valden: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Clubs}

The {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} flop and {a-Clubs} turn kept Valden way ahead, leaving only the queens, jacks, and eights as outs. The river was one of them, the {j-Hearts}, and he celebrated the double-up.

"Gutshot Corey strikes again!" his friends joked from the rail.
