Azares Scores Big Double Near Night's End

Francisco Azares

We had one last big chip swing during the final hands of the night, occurring in a hand between Francisco Azares and Niel Mittelman.

The board was showing {A-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{9-Spades}, and when the river card arrived, Mittelman set out a stack of orange chips for a bet of 100,000 (something close to the size of the pot). That's when Azares said he was all in for the 281,000 he had left, sending Mittelman into the tank.

Mittelman went through a series of exasperated expressions as he gathered together the calling chips. Then he finally pushed the chips forward, looking upward at the ceiling as he did as if he didn't want to see what Azares was going to turn over.

Mittelman did look down, however, and saw the bad news — {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} for Azares, giving him a full house. Mittelman had to laugh as he mucked, saying he'd had a flush.
