Huge Double for Healy To Chip Lead

From under the gun, Patrick Healy raised to 40,000 and Kenneth Wong called from the next seat. Yann Dion was in the big blind and action folded to him before he three-bet to 159,000. A few seconds passed before Healy announced a reraise. He then paused for a few more seconds and announced, "450,000 total." Wong folded and then Dion moved all in. Healy snapped and tabled the {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}. Dion held the {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}.

The flop came down {J-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Dion went from crushed to feeling pretty good about his chances having flopped three hearts. The turn was the {Q-Spades} and gave Dion even more outs with a Broadway straight draw now.

The river failed to give him anything he needed with the {9-Diamonds} and he was forced to pay the toll. Dion looked like all the wind had been knocked out of his sails, but he wasn't completely done yet. Dion was left with 875,000 in chips, which is still nearly 44 big blinds. Healy doubled to the chip lead with 3.6 million after being all on preflop for 1.804 million.
