Perkins' Turn to Double

When we reached Table 3, the board read {8-Spades}{q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}. The action checked to Bill Perkins, who fired 25,000 into a pot of around 22,000. Dan Shak folded, and Sam Stein grabbed a stack of green T25,000, plopping them in front of him to put Perkins all in. Perkins immediately called.

Perkins: {10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Stein: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

Perkins was ahead, and held when the turn and river came {k-Diamonds}, {5-Diamonds} respectively.

"I'm playing any two f***ing cards," Perkins announced.

The dealer counted down Perkins' stack, and it came out to 159,700. Stein paid that man his money, and the stacks now look like this:

Chip stacks
Bill Perkins us 341,000 166,000
Sam Stein us 335,000 -119,000
