Will 'imahustla1' Givens ––shot at redemption
Sokoloff and Moed mix it up
Sokoloff ––full double up
In this roller coaster final table race, Paul Sokoloff is far from down and out––finding a way to double up in a hand where he is completely dominated preflop, K-6 vs. Givens’ A-6. With a king hitting on the flop, Sokoloff is back to a comfortable stack of 1.5 million. Sokoloff also doubles through Moed A-10 against pocket sixes, with the 4-8-J board first pairing the eight on the turn and then pairing the jack on the river. This negates the pockets and makes ace high the ultimate winner. Unfortunately, luck comes back to bite Sokoloff on the ass as he stakes his remaining 1 million chips on A-9 and is up against Givens' 7-7. The pocket pair holds up and he leaves with a take home of $131,110.
