Back-to-Back Doubles for Wilson

Just when it looked as if Rubie had things licked up, Scott Wilson has charged back with two doubles in a row.

The first came when he put 305,000 all in preflop with {J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and was up against the {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} of Rubie. The {5-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{Q-Spades} flop gave Wilson the better pair, and the {3-Spades} turn and {2-Clubs} river kept him there. Just like that, he was up over 600K.

In the very next hand, Rubie moved all in from the button and Wilson called off from the big blind.

Wilson: {A-Clubs}{3-Spades}
Rubie: {9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

Wilson was ahead and stayed there as the board ran out {4-Spades}{J-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs}{a-Hearts}. In just two hands, Wilson went from the brink of elimination to having over a million in chips.
