Geyer Smashes a Double

It was a limped pot that saw Adam Geyer and Anthony Gargano take a friendly {2-Hearts} {7-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} flop. Gargano was in position, and Geyer let him bet 10,000 before check-raising to 27,000. Gargano's answer was a covering all-in shove. That sunk Geyer into his chair a bit, and he shook his head back and forth as he pondered the predicament. After some time, he called off his last 294,500 chips to put himself at risk.

Gargano: {A-Hearts} {2-Clubs}
Geyer: {Q-Diamonds} {2-Spades}

Geyer had flopped top and bottom, and he needed to fade the aces and hearts left in the deck. The turn was scary but safe — the {10-Diamonds}. The river brought the {2-Diamonds} and a full house for Geyer, and he's found a monster double. It moves him up over 600,000, and Gargano is left in some trouble with just over 15bb.
