Trickett Doubles Up

Yardley • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante
Sam Trickett

Kamal Choraria opened the action for 6,500 from the cut-off and Sam Trickett moved all in over the top for 80,000. It seemed Dori Yacoub in the big blind had a tough decision to make as he took a few minutes to make up his mind, particularly as they all had similar stack sizes. Yacoub did fold though and when it got back to Choraria he made a quick call.

Trickett felt he must be in big trouble as he slightly sheepishly turned over his {4-Spades}{4-Hearts}. He would utter, “Oh wow.” on seeing Choraria’s {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. A flop of {8-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} saw Trickett out of his seat. All eyes were glued to the felt as the dealer burned and turned the {7-Spades}. A collective gasp rang out when Trickett spiked his {4-Diamonds} river card to double up and put the hurt on Choraria.
