Veldhuis Doubles

We got to the table to find Lex Veldhuis all in for his last 22,975 before the flop against an unknown opponent. Veldhuis' opponent was pondering a call.

"What do you have like ace-jack? Or are you just going to drill me with kings?" said Veldhuis to his opponent.

Eventually his opponent called and showed {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}. Veldhuis tabled {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} and the two were racing for Veldhuis' tournament life.

The board fell {9-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and Veldhuis was able to score a double up to about 48,000.
