Riess Scores a Double Elimination

• Nível 11: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Sorel Mizzi, who will return tomorrow for the 2014 Aussie Millions Main Event final table, opened for a raise only to have Ryan Riess three-bet to 70,000. Tony Bloom then moved all in from the button for 219,000, a short-stacked Mizzi called off, and Riess shrugged before calling to put both players at risk.

Mizzi: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Bloom: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Riess: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

All three players held a pocket pair, but of course Riess' ladies were best. The {10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{5-Spades} flop wasn't particularly interesting, but the {3-Spades} turn was as it gave Bloom the best flush draw. The river was actually a spade to give Bloom the flush, but fortunately for Riess it was the {Q-Spades} to improve him to a full house.

"Good luck, Sorel," Riess offered Mizzi in regards to his big final table on Sunday.
