Cunningham Gets Lucky to Double Through Reeder

BrandonTemple • Level 24: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante
Brent Cunningham

Hand #1:

Brent Cunningham raised to 60,000 from the cutoff, and Brian Reeder three-bet to 175,000 from the button. Cunningham folded.

Hand #2:

The very next hand, Kyle Cartwright raised to 60,000 from middle position, and Cunningham three-bet shoved for 480,000 from the hijack. Reeder four-bet shoved for 1.3 million from the cutoff, and action folded back to Cartwright, who quickly folded.

Brent Cunningham: {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Brian Reeder: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Reeder's Big Slick held on the {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop, but the {q-Spades} turn left him shaking his head, as Cunningham peeled a three-outer to leave Reeder looking for an ace to earn the knockout. The {4-Clubs} on the river changed nothing, and Cunningham doubled up.
