Hand #54: Danny Shiff Doubles Thru and Cripples Hayden Fortini
Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Hayden Fortini completes the small blind to 50,000, and Danny Shiff checks his option in the big blind. The flop comes 954, Fortini bets 75,000, Shiff raises to 175,000, and Fortini thinks for about 30 seconds before moving all in for 1,065,000.
Shiff quickly calls all in for 980,000 with Q9 for a pair of nines, and Fortini turns over 5-4 for two pair, fives and fours. Shiff will need to improve to stay alive.
The turn is the 10, the river is the 10, and the board counterfeits Fortini's two pair, giving Shiff the victory with two pair, tens and nines, to double up in chips.
