Ma Doubles Through Clark With Ace High

AnthonyThompson • Level 33: 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante

Robert Clark raised from the cutoff and then called the 2,775,000 three-bet jam Mickey Ma made from the button.

Mickey Ma: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Robert Clark: {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Ma had Clark dominated and the {j-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop didn't change a thing.

Both players benefited from the {8-Diamonds} turn as it gave Ma the nut flush draw while Clark picked-up a gutshot straight draw, but it was Ma who got the last laugh as the {k-Spades} river secured her double-up.

Clark Straightens Yau for Double

AnthonyThompson • Level 32: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

There was heads-up action between Robert Clark from the cutoff and Ethan Yau from the big blind with a completed board of {10-Spades}{6-Clubs}{j-Spades}{7-Hearts}{2-Hearts} board showing.

With roughly 3.5 million already in the pot, Yau led out and then called the 2.5 million all in raise from Clark.

Clark quickly rolled over {9-Spades}{8-Spades} for a jack-high straight and it was good as Yau tossed {j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} into the muck.

AnthonyThompson • Level 32: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

Jeremy Felicetti open-jammed for 1,975,000 from the cutoff and Boris Kolev looked him up from the big blind.

Boris Kolev: {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Jeremy Felicetti: {q-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Felicetti found himself in a tough spot but luckily for him a special lady appeared on the {q-Spades}{4-Spades}{a-Diamonds} flop.

Felicetti still had a sweat as Kolev could win with any king or ten but the board competed with the {6-Clubs} turn and followed by the {3-Clubs} river and secured his double-up.
