Vang Takes Commanding Lead

mnuwwarah • Level 19: 10,000-20,000, 2,000 ante
Kou Vang doubled up huge.

Kou Vang opened for his standard 44,000 on the button, and Shawn Schoreck three-bet to 125,000. Vang made the call, and the two saw a flop of {10-Clubs}{6-Spades}{k-Diamonds}.

"Same bet," Schoreck announced, and Vang called once more.

The turn was the {2-Clubs}, and Schoreck bet out 300,000. Vang shoved for 723,000, and Schoreck thought for about a minute before dropping a calling stack in.

"Let's get a club out there," Schoreck said.

Schoreck: {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}
Vang: {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

Vang had flopped two pair, but Schoreck had outs with bottom pair and a flush draw. The river was a brick: {8-Diamonds}, and Vang now has a huge lead.
