Early in the day, Nelli Shteyn (Houston, TX) doubled up when her AJ held up against Brandon Berkenfeld’s KQ.  “I only called because that’s my favorite hand,” Brandon said.

It was not without a sweat, however, as the flop came A T 2 giving Brandon a gutshot.  Nelli faded his outs, however, and doubled up to about 140k.

Nelli was the winner of Event 25, the Black Chip Bounty NLH secondary event last weekend.
