Romero Scores an Early Double Up

ajlamers • Level 15: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

Wai Leong Chan opened to 125,000 from under the gun and was called by Ivan Leow on his left. James Romero was next to act and three-bet to 500,000. The action folded back to Chan who shoved all in for over 2,000,000 which got Leow to quickly fold. It was Romero's first hand of the day and his fresh stack of 1,000,000 chips went into the middle.

James Romero: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Wai Leong Chan: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

The flop came 7c5c3s] and Chan was still out front with his pocket queens. The turn brought the {k-Clubs} and Romero spiked a king to take the lead. The {5-Hearts} on the river changed nothing and Romero received an early double up.
