XL Inferno #32: $500,000 Main Event

Lovgren Doubles with Two Pair

Jaxon • Level 12: 1,500-3,000, 375 ante
Sofia Lovgren

Sofia "sofialovgren" Lovgren is near the top of the chip counts after doubling up.

The hand began innocently enough with "metal_ouda" limping in from the small blind and Lovgren checking behind from the big blind.

"metal_ouda" led out for 3,962 after the {4-Spades}{6-Hearts}{10-Hearts} came on the flop. Lovgren raised to 11,886 and got a call. "metal_ouda" check-called a bet of 18,348 after the {5-Spades} came on the turn.

The {k-Diamonds} completed the board on the river Lovgren bet out for 34,196 after the action was checked to her. "metal_ouda" jammed for 277,671, covering the 181,551 Lovgren had in her stack.

Lovgren made the call and turned over {10-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for two pair which beat the {j-Hearts}{10-Clubs} held by her opponent.

A few hands later, Chris "888Moorman" Moorman lost his stack for the third time and is on his fourth and final bullet of the tournament with only three reentries permitted.
