Olivier Busquet shoves from the button with Spade 5Spade 7 and Chris Kruk calls off his 10BB stack with Club QDiamond 9.

The flop gives both a pair with Club 9Diamond 7Club J but the Club 5 on the turn puts Busquet one card away from winning the match two games to one.

The river  Heart J , however, counterfeits his hand to gift Kruk the double-up.
