Marcus Knocks Out Two!

Van Busts Broom
A crazy hand has just seen two players eliminated and Van Marcus collect a monsterous pot.

James Broom opened with a raise from under the gun to 6,000 and found callers in Rudy Lim and June Caberoy, before action was with the short-stacked Takashi Ogura who moved all in from the small blind for 16,000.

Van Marcus was in the big blind and announced yet another raise, this time to 100,000! James Broom quickly moved his entire stack into the middle as Lim and Caberoy stepped aside.

Marcus tabled {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, Ogura {A-Clubs}{7-Hearts} but both trailed Broom's {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}.

An ace was in the window to give Ogura hope, but when it fell {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} Marcus had hit a set to leave Ogura in trouble. Meanwhile Broom was shouting for a diamond to give him the flush to double up. The turn and river bricked {8-Clubs},{3-Clubs} and Marcus scooped the pot to send two to the rail! He's now up to over 220,000 chips as Broom and Ogura collect $3,257 for their efforts.
