Frederiksen Gets It in Bad

Chad_Holloway • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Kim Frederiksen found himself all in preflop for his last 480,000 holding {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} against the {A-Spades}{9-Clubs} of his opponent. "I'll take a chop," Frederiksen said in preparation for the flop. The dealer did him one better and delivered the {7-Spades}, along with the {4-Diamonds} and {10-Clubs}, on the flop.

The {6-Hearts} on the turn was a safe card and all Frederiksen needed to do was dodge a nine or eight on the river. Lucky for him, it was the {2-Spades}. He is now up to one million.
