Hand #1: Sam Stein Doubles Through Mike Krescanko
Level 21: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Mike Krescanko raises from the button to 58,000, Sam Stein reraises from the big blind to 206,000, and Krescanko tanks for about a minute before he calls.
The flop comes Q85, Stein thinks for a bit before he moves all in, and Krescanko quickly calls with Q10 (pair of queens). Stein shows AK (ace high), and he'll need to improve to stay alive.
The turn card is the 7, and Stein picks up a diamond flush draw -- he's looking for an ace, a king, or any diamond.
The river card is the J, and Sam Stein's family and friends go crazy as he catches a runner-runner diamond flush to win the pot and double up.
