Dan Shak opened the pot to 33,000, and Sam Stein defended his big blind to go heads-up to the flop. It came , and Stein check-called 50,000. On the turn , Shak bet another 100,000, but this time Stein check-raised all in. He had the bigger stack — but just barely — so the move put Shak to the decision for his last 374,000 chips. Snap-call! Cards up:
Shak only had to fade five outs once, and the river was safe and sound. With the double, Shak has moved up over 900,000, while Stein has been crippled down to just a big blind plus a couple antes.
