Vedhara Doubles Into the Lead

zedmaster84 • Level 30: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
Rickie Vedhara

James Rann limped the first hand after the break and Joshua Boulton checked his option in the big blind. They checked the {q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop, Rann bet the {a-Hearts} turn for 140,000 and Boulton asked.

Both checked the {k-Clubs} on the river and Rann's {j-Spades}{9-Hearts} was no good as Boulton had that beat with the {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}.

In the next hand, Boulton limped the small blind and Rickie Vedhara raised to 420,000 total. Some 30 seconds passed and Boulton then moved all-in with the covering stack to send his opponent into the tank.

Vedhara went through all combinations with visible motion and he eventually called it off for more than 30 blinds.

Rickie Vedhara: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}
Joshua Boulton: {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}

The mighty ducks remained ahead on the {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} flop but that changed on the {a-Clubs} turn. No deuce but the {5-Diamonds} fell on the river, shipping a large double for 3,490,000 to Vedhara.
