Johnson Doubles Through Pihlstrom

Peter Pihlstrom had done some excellent work building his stack back up to over 4 million, when he got involved with Paul Johnson on a Jd 8h Kd flop. Pihlstrom check-raised all in with Kh Qh for top pair, and Johnson called all in with Ad Jh for second pair. The 9d turn changed nothing, but the Js on the river sent the pot to Johnson, doubling him up to 2.9 million. Pihlstrom meanwhile dropped back to 2.8 million.
