Eric Hicks Doubles

Louie Calvo opened to 70,000, and Eric Hicks, who was next to act, asked for the size of a pot-sized raise. The answer was 270,000, and Hicks then potted. Rudolph Sawa was on the button, and he re-potted to get rid of all opponents but Hicks, who called for 395,000 total.

Eric Hicks: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}
Rudolph Sawa: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{J-Spades}{2-Hearts}

Hicks was in bad shape, but he found the goods on the {6-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades}{7-Hearts} board to double up.

In the following minutes, Hicks managed to score yet another double. He was all in on a {3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{7-Spades} flop holding {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}. Hicks was facing elimination against Aleksei Altshuller's {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades}, but the {7-Diamonds} landed on the turn. The river {Q-Spades} kept Hicks' trips ahead, and he received a big chunk of chips from Altshuller.
