Alaei Finds a Double

Daniel Alaei

When we walked up to the table, the turn was already out on a {7-Diamonds} {2-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} {A-Clubs} board, and Daniel Alaei had 12,000 out in front of him. He was heads up, and Tobias Reinkemeier called the 12,000 to see the {9-Hearts} on the river. When Reinkemeier checked, Alaei grabbed his last 42,000 chips and slung them across the line.

Reinkemeier tanked for a couple minutes, then made the call. We'd never get to see his cards. Alaei turned up {2-Diamonds} {2-Clubs}, and the worst set was the best hand.

Trip deuces double Alaei back around 125,000, knocking Reinkemeier back down to about 65,000 or so.
