Bellagio floorman John Hardin filled us in on how he doubled his stack shortly before the break. 

As he tells it, Hardin raised from under the gun with J-10 offsuit. The player in the big blind called, then checked when the flop came [JsTs5x]. Hardin bet 1,600, then his opponent check-raised to around 4,800.

Hardin then moved all in for 30,000 effective and his opponent quickly called with [Asqs] for a Royal Flush draw.

The turn and river both brought fives. Hardin scooped the pot with fives full of jacks and doubled to around 75,000.
