The classic coin flip hand- pocket JJ vs AQ were favorable to Ryan Hohner and AJ Jamil to recently double up.  Opponent opened UTG to 15K and Jamil 3 bet from the small blind to 50K, and opponent flatted

Flop: Q♦J♠4♥ Jamil goes all in for his remaining 158k, opponent tanks and then calls and shows his A♥Q♥ to Jamil’s J♣J♦ board ran out 5♦10♥ to give Jamil the win and double.

On the other end of this hand was Hohner who was growing a bit short stacked, and tells me he open shoved pre-flop for his remaining 112k and held the A♥Q♥ vs pocket JJ.  Hohner hit an Ace on the flop and held for his double up.
