Phua Finds Unlikely Turn to Double Through Chan

MartianNews • Level 22: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Paul Phua picked up his cards and instantly raised to 250,000 after seeing {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}. Wai Leong Chan three-bet to 650,000 with {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs} and Phua shoved 1,850,000 all in, Chan snap-called with his kings.

Paul Phua: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Wai Leong Chan: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

The flop was of no help to Phua as it came down {8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. A {j-Diamonds} peeled off on the turn, giving Phua a set of jacks and the lead. The {9-Spades} river didn't shift the lead as Phua pulled in a complete double through Chan.
