Monsalves Doubles


Jonathan Monsalves is a fighter. He recently shipped his stack of about 1.35 million into the pot on the button with {Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts} and was called by the {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} of Julian Menendez. It was a race, but after the flop came down {J-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{9-Hearts}, Monsalves became the favorite with overs, an open-ended straight draw, and a bigger flush draw.

The {Q-Diamonds} turn was one of his outs and gave him a hammerlock on the hand. The {A-Clubs} river changed nothing and Monsalves lived to play another hand.
