Farrell Doubles Through Markin

Homer • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Niall Farrell

A tough last two hands for chip leader Leonid Markin, he lost with two pair to Jorryt van Hoof's better two pair. In the last hand, Nial Farrell shoved for 238,000 from under-the-gun and Markin made the call.

Markin: {A-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Farrell: {A-Spades}{5-Spades}

The flop came {4-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} but the {A-Hearts} on the turn meant Markin needed a card lower than an eight that wasn't a five or paired the board to bust Farrell. Anything else would mean a chopped pot except the previously mentioned five.

The {5-Clubs} then came on the end and Farrell managed to double up at the death.
