Jared Hamby doubles through Fierro

Hand 87- Jared Hamby limped in from the small blind, and Peter Hengsakul checked his option. The flop came down {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}, and a bet of 55,000 from Hamby got the job done.

Hand 88- Hamby made it 110,000 from the button, and Nicolas Fierro defended his big blind. The dealer fanned out a flop of {j-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{k-Spades}, and Fierro checked to Hamby, who checked as well. The {5-Hearts} hit the turn, and this time, Fierro fired out 100,000. Hamby called, and the {6-Spades} hit the river. Fierro fired out again, this time for 255,000. Hamby kicked his hand in after a minute of tanking, and Fierro took down the pot.

Hand 89- Peter Hengsakul raised to 100,000 from the button, and Allan Vrooman came along from the big blind. The flop came down {9-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts}. Vrooman led right out with a bet of 120,000, and Hengsakul made the call to see the {6-Spades} hit the turn. Vrooman checked this time, and Hengsakul bet out 200,000. Vrooman folded quickly, and Hengsakul took down the pot.

Hand 90- Fierro made it 105,000 on the button, and Jared Hamby made it 275,000 from the big blind. Fierro thought for about 30 seconds before annoucing all in, and Hamby dropped chips in the middle for the call.

Hamby: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Fierro: {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Both players had very close stacks, but Hamby was the one who's tournament life was on the line. He held the pair in the race, and that hand held as the board ran down {5-Spades}{4-Hearts}{a-Spades}{6-Hearts}{10-Clubs}.

After winning that hand, Hamby is up to 3.2 million, while Fierro is left with just 160,000.
