Cunniff Spikes River to Stay Alive; Doubles Through McMaster

AnthonyThompson • Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante
Gerald Cunniff

There was all in action between Gerald Cunniff on the button and Derek McMaster from the big blind with Cunniff at risk.

Gerald Cunniff: {a-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Derek McMaster: {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}

Cunniff was dominated and needed some help which he got from the {2-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{4-Spades} flop adding outs to a wheel.

The turn fell the {8-Hearts} and Cunniff needed any five or three to win the hand.

Luckily for Cunniff, the dealer had his back and dropped the {5-Hearts} on the river giving him the double up worth 154,000.
