Championship: Russell Gets Two Doubles

$5,300 Championship NLH $10 Million Guaranteed (Re-Entry)
Level 28: Blinds 25k/50k/5k ante

Russell Thomas began the day near the bottom of the chip counts but found two hard ways to get his stack moving in the right direction.

Thomas doubled up in an early hand against Natasha Barbour with AcKs against AcQd. Barbour flopped a Queen but Thomas rivered a gutshot Broadway straight.

As the level was coming to an end, he was all-in for 925,000 with As2h against Dan Colman’s AhTh. Thomas was looking at the rail until the dealer dropped Aces up for him on the AcKh2d flop. The 2012 November Niner now sits with a few chips over 2,000,000.

Players are now off on their first 15-minute break with 13 players remaining.
