Warrington Doubles Up By Cracking Kings!

Ramzi Jelassi and Ben Warrington

Ben Warrington is up to almost 1.9 million thanks to his lowly ace-four cracking Ramzi Jelassi's kings.

Jelassi opened from the button and then snap-called when Warrington three-bet all-in for 860,000 in the small blind. Warrington turned over {A-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and was in a whole world of pain against the red kings of his Swedish opponent.

The dealer burned a card before putting the wheel-completing {3-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop — gifting Warrington a straight! The {A-Spades} turn drew some oohs and ahhs from the crowd as a four would split the pot. Any fears of that happening were soon dismissed though as the river was the {j-Hearts} and Warrington doubled up.

You may remember that the now-bust Aleh Plauski had similar luck with a baby ace, his ace-deuce cracking the pocket kings of Andreas Berggren when the flop came down all deuces! Maybe small aces are better hands than we give them credit for?
