Herzali Scores Double Knock Out

Webjoker • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Sarah Herzali

Polish player Bartlomiej Machon was down to his last 22,800 and moved in when the action folded to him in the cutoff. Sarah Herzali, who made a deep run in the WPT Marrakech earlier this month (5th, €15,044), called from the small blind. Russian player Asker Aloev called from the big blind to make it three-handed.

The flop came {J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and Herzali bet 21,000. Aloev didn't waste much time calling.

With the {4-Spades} hitting the turn, Herzali moved all in. Aloev still had over 70,000 in front of him at this point and sat back to ponder for a bit. He eventually called and received the bad news seconds later.

Sarah Herzali: {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Asker Aloev: {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Bartlomiej Machon: {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

Herzali had both opponents drawing dead and so whatever river would come, it would be inconsequential. Just to make things official, the dealer did burn and complete the board with the {2-Diamonds} but by that time, Herzali was already stacking.
