Matt Marafioti Doubles Thru Daniel Buzgon
Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Daniel Buzgon raises to 25,000 on the button and Matt Marafioti reraises to 74,000 out of the small blind. Buzgon thinks a while then announces he is all-in.
Marafioti wants to make sure he heard him correctly. "What's That? All-in? I call."
Marafioti instantly turns over AA and Buzgon winces as he reveals AK. The board runs out J725A and when Marafioti realizes he won the hand, he takes off across the room, talking quietly to himself and celebrating.
When Marafioti returns to the table, he takes out a $100 bill and tosses it to the dealer as a sign of gratitude for what Marafioti calls a cooler hand.
Matt Marafioti - 950,000 (79 BBs)
Daniel Buzgon - 630,000 (52 BBs)
