Reuven Shapiro

Reuven Shapiro was all in with KdQh on the hijack, and Mike Vela in late position had him covered holding 9d7d on a final board reading AdQd3d3s3c. Shapiro doubled up to survive with 158,000 after collecting the pot thanks to a full house topping a flush. Vela was still cruising after the hand as well with a stack above 100,000.

Reuven Shapiro – 158,000 (79 bb)
Mike Vela – 110,000 (55 bb)
