Double Up For Kovacs

Andras Kovacs has just doubled up through Charalampos Kapernopoulos and here is how the hand went down.

The action folded around to Kovacs in the cutoff and he open shoved for 501,000. The button and small blind folded and Kapernopoulos peeked at his cards, smiled at Kovacs and then put his hands behind his head. After a few seconds of questioning Kapernopoulos called and we had a showdown with Kovacs at risk of elimination.

Kovacs{7-Spades} {7-Hearts}
Kapernopoulos{A-Clubs} {10-Spades}

Flop: {10-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {4-Hearts}

Kovacs lets out a cry of yes and walks over to the rail to embrace his girlfriend. Meanwhile Kapernopoulos looked distraught and needed runner-runner to eliminate Kovacs. The turn was the {Q-Diamonds} and Kapernopoulos was drawing dead making the {3-Spades} totally irrelevant.
