This was was a bit interesting in that Caroline Hermesh shouldn't have doubled, but she did. She started the hand with the showing and had to bring-in. She asked what the amount was, but the tournament director thought she had asked what the completion amount was. He told her it was 6,000 and she completed the bet. Action folded to David Williams and he just called with the up. When this happened, the tournament director announced that Williams made the call and Williams looked a little puzzled, clearly thinking he was completing the bet as he didn't see Hermesh come in for the complete amount.
Due to being short, Hermesh bet her last chips on fourth and fifth. She bet 6,000 on fourth and then bet all in on fifth for her final 4,000. Williams called both times.
Williams was ahead on fifth when the money went in with a pair of queens, but Hermesh hit a Broadway straight on sixth street to leave Williams drawing dead and officially earn her the double up.
