Hand #16: Tommy Vedes Doubles Through Shawn Cunix
Level 24: 40,000-80,000, 5,000 ante
Craig Crivello raises under the gun to 240,000, Freddy Deeb calls from middle position, Shawn Cunix calls from the button, Tommy Vedes calls from the small blind, and Jason Lavallee calls from the big blind.
The flop comes KQ6, everyone checks to Cunix on the button, who bets 720,000, and Vedes moves all in for 1,325,000. Everyone folds to Cunix, who quickly calls with 66 for a set of sixes. Vedes shows KQ for two pair (kings and queens), and he'll need to catch another king or a queen to stay alive.
The turn card is -- the K!
Tommy Vedes turns a higher full house (kings full of queens) and his friends on the rail (including Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi and Glen Chorny) explode into cheers and high fives. But it's not over yet, because Cunix is drawing to a single out -- the case six -- to eliminate Vedes here.
The river card is the 5, and Tommy Vedes wins the pot to double up.
