Event 7: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

A Doubling Party

• Taso 7: 400-800, 100 ante

Both Daniel Idema and Chris Amaral were the beneficiary of double ups straight out the last break. Idema doubled through Kevin Calenzo after hitting aces and jacks for a winning two pair. He was behind going into seventh street, but snatched up his second pair on the end to double back to 9,200 in chips. Calenzo was left with 3,500.

On another table, Amaral was all in and behind his opponent's pair of jacks, but nailed a fifth diamond on seventh street to make a flush and double back to 3,500. "Here comes the uptick," said Amaral with a smile and a thumbs up.
