Lunkin Gets Lucky to Double Through Seidel

[user153638] • Nivel 22: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante

Erik Seidel was just five cards away from victory, but a nasty ace snatched it away.

It happened when Vitaly Lunkin raised to 240,000 with the {a-Hearts}{7-Spades} and Seidel popped it to 725,000 after looking down at the {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} from the big blind. Lunkin agonized over the decision for several minutes and then seemingly out of nowhere announced that he was all in. Seidel snap-called and it seemed the rail could sense a winner was about to be determined.

That changed just as soon as the {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop delivered Lunkin a pair of aces and the lead. Neither the {10-Spades} turn nor {4-Diamonds} river helped Seidel and Lunkin doubled on the hand.
