Smith Fades to a Huge Double

Dan Smith

Boom, we have action!

"All in and call!" was the announcement from the final table, which brought everyone up in Studio 3 to their feet.

Dan Smith was all in preflop with the {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} against the {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} for Mikhail Smirnov. The flop came down {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Hearts} and the sixes for Smith held up so far.

The {10-Spades} on the turn gave Smirnov some more outs to win the hand as he could no counterfeit the sixes of Smith if a nine fell.

The river was the big ol' {2-Clubs} and just what Smith wanted to see. He was able to fade the outs of Smirnov and double through. After the chips were counted, it was determined that Smith was all in for 1.01 million in chips. That now gives him a big strangle hold on this match.
