Bartello Doubles Through Shin

HillKerby • Level 6: 300-500, 500 ante
Viincent Bartello

Action was heads up between Byung Shin, who was under the gun, and Vincent Bartello in the hijack with 11,500 in the middle on a board of {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Shin checked to Bartello, who bet 4,500 and was called after the amount was confirmed.

The river came {3-Hearts} and Shin checked again. Bartello fired his last 6,200 into the middle and Shin thought for a bit before finding a call.

Vincent Bartello: {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Byung Shin: {q-Spades}{10-Spades}

Bartello's top two pair bested Shin's top pair and he earned the double to take him back above starting stack. With the lost pot, Shin now finds himself short and in need of some help to stay alive and spin up his stack.
