Pezzin Nearly Double Starting Stack

When we arrived at the table, James Mitchell had 1,500 in front of him as a bet/raise and Team PokerStars Pro Pat Pezzin had 4,500 in front of him. We're not sure if Pezzin was check-raised by Mitchell on the flop of {K-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} or if Mitchell had led and Pezzin raised. At any rate, Mitchell called to see a turn.

The turn was the {A-Diamonds} and both players checked to see the {3-Spades} land on the river. Mitchell bet 5,500 and Pezzin made the call.

Mitchell showed the {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts} for top two pair. Pezzin tabled the {K-Clubs}{K-Spades} for a set of kings and won the pot. He's now nearing a double starting stack with that win.
