Chi Chang Doubles Up

Chi Chang is all in preflop for $45,000, showing 10s-9c. Quinn Do holds 6c-5h, and the flop comes Kd-Jc-7h. Chang is still in the lead with ten high, and he makes a gut-shot straight on the turn when it falls 8h. Do is drawing dead, and the meaningless last card is the 7d. Chi Chang doubles up to $90,000 in chips.
 

Chi Chang v. Quinn Do

Chi Chang raises to $40,000, Quinn Do reraises to $60,000, and Chang calls. Do bets $20,000 in the dark, before the flop comes Qd-10d-4c, and Chang calls. The turn card is the Qs, Do bets $40,000, and Chang calls. The river card is the 6h, Do bets $40,000, and Chang folds.
