Vic Spadavecchia Doubles With Cowboys

[user38334] • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 2,000 ante

It was folded around to Robert Nguyen in the small blind, who raised to 40,000. Vic Spadavecchia made it 80,000 from the big blind and Nguyen made the call. The flop came {5-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Nguyen checked. Spadavecchia paused for a moment before moving all-in and was almost beaten into the pot by Robert Nguyen who snap called.

Spadavecchia opened {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} for an overpair of Kings, and Nguyen opened {j-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for an open ended straight draw. The turn was the {8-Diamonds}, giving Nguyen a pair and even more outs, but it was the {4-Hearts} on the river that gave Vic Spadavecchia the double up.
