Hwang Doubles Thru Elias

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH 

Jin Hwang opened for 525k from the cutoff, then Darren Elias (button) raised to 1.225 million.  Jin gave it some thought, then called.

The flop was Q♣J♠5♠ and Jin announced he was all-in.  After giving it some think-time, Darren called.

Jin showed Q♠7♠ for top pair with the flush draw.  Darren held AK♠ for a gutshot with two overs.

The turn was the 3♠, completing Jin's flush, but giving Darren a draw to a higher flush.

River was the 5, however, and Jin's flush held up to double him up to 6.2 million.

Darren was left with about 4 million.
