Mike Watson opened to 1,200 from under the gun and picked up two callers taking the action three-way to a flop of which all three players check.
The turn brought a check from the small blind and Watson led out for 3,000. The player sitting to Watson’s direct left folded and the small blind check-raised all-in for 13,400. Watson did not take long to call, flipping over for two pairs, but is trailing to the small blind’s flopped Broadway straight.
No ace or ten hit the river and the shortstack doubled to 32,000 while Watson dropped to 54,000.
