Sagias Doubles Into the Lead

• Level 23: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

After the usual 60,000 raise preflop, Yuki Ko and Ilias Sagias headed to the flop of {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{8-Spades}. Ko bet 85,000 and Sagias raised the pot, the Japanese repotted and both players got their stacks in.

Sagias: {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for a pair of eights, a gutshot straight draw and the nut flush draw
Ko: {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{4-Spades} for two pair and the second nut flush draw

The {5-Clubs} on the turn improved Sagias but he didn't have the hand locked up yet. It was guaranteed after the {7-Diamonds} river though and Sagias doubled up for 670,000.
