Jim O'Callaghan

Antonio Merone limped in the small blind and Jim O'Callaghan checked his big blind.

The flop came {10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds} and Merone bet 100,000. O'Callaghan raised to 350,000 and Merone called.

The turn was the {3-Hearts}. Merone checked and O'Callaghan overbet jammed for 1,660,000. Merone tanked, counted out the chips to make the call, before sliding it in to the middle.

O'Callaghan tabled {8-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} with a degree of uncertainty for two pair while Merone held {a-Clubs}{9-Spades} for top pair. The river was the {4-Clubs} and O'Callaghan doubled up.
