Jeffrey Schwartz had one foot out the door but caught what he needed on the flop and doubled up through Mohamed Mamouni as a result.
Schwartz opened to 130,000 in middle position and Steve Nooralian called in the small blind. Mamouni shoved for 1,750,000 in the big blind and Schwartz didn’t take long to call for 1,480,000 total. Nooralian folded rather than risk his last 10 big blinds. Mamouni opened up A♥K♠ and was a huge favorite against the A♠Q♣.
The Q♦J♠6♣ flop had Mamouni cursing his luck but he was still live to hit a king or 10 to knock out Schwartz. The 6♦ turn and 8♠ river were blanks, allowing Schwartz to pick up the pot.
Mamouni doubled up the next hand but is under 10 big blinds with the blind set to go up.
