Chad Holloway

PokerNews's Chad Holloway came back from break and doubled his stack in two hands after he raised to 2,000 from middle position finding one caller directly to his left.

The {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop saw Holloway continue for 1,500 and his opponent called bringing the {3-Clubs} turn. Action went check-check and the {10-Clubs} completed the board on the river.

Holloway led out for 2,500, his opponent called and quickly mucked after he showed top two-pair {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}.

One hand later, Holloway opened to 2,500 from under the gun and found two callers before the big blind squeezed all in for 19,800. Holloway came over the top and isolated holding a pair of kings. His opponent held an inferior {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} and was eliminated after the runout.
