Hand 44: Juanda Rivers an Ace to Double!

Webjoker • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante
John Juanda

Hand #44: Juanda found {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} and made it 320,000 from early position. Andreas Samuelsson in the cutoff picked up {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} and thought about it for a bit before three betting to 740,000.

It folded back to Juanda who, with at this time 22 big blinds behind but with short stack Touma still alive, decided to four bet to 1,480,000. Samuelsson tanked for about 3 minutes and shoved all in. Juanda called instantly.

The flop came {4-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{4-Clubs}, making Samuelsson a three to one favorite. The {9-Diamonds} on the turn meant Juanda was down to just six outs. The {A-Diamonds} on the river was one of them and Juanda doubled!
