Sergey Sergeev was down to only 10,000 chips but just found his much-needed double up.
It was Morten Mortensen who opened the hand with a raise to 750. Sergeev called from the button only to see big blind James Akenhead throw in a three-bet to 3,000.
Mortensen called, as did Sergeev. The flop came down and Akenhead continued for another 3,000. Mortensen called and Sergeev moved in for 7,250 total.
Akenhead immediately folded but Mortensen made the call.
Sergeev flopped trips and was in great shape to double up. Mortensen needed running kings or aces but was left drawing dead when the hit the turn.
He did improve with the on the river but thad didn't matter anymore.
