Following the turn of a Ks6cJd10h board with about 28,000 in the pot, Ernie Castellanos bet 18,000 from the cutoff. Steven Cardarelli raised all in for 52,500 from the button and Castellanos thought for a bit before he called with QdJh for a pair of jacks and a straight draw, trailing Cardarelli’s AdQh for an ace-high straight.

The 2s river completed the board, safe for Cardarelli to double up.

Steven Cardarelli  –  132,000  (53 bb)
Ernie Castellanos  –  66,000  (26 bb)
