Miracle Runner-Runner Saves Eckert

KaleGozer • Level 22: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Jan Eckert

Roberto Morra raised to 60,000 from middle position, Jan Eckert three-bet shoved 590,000 on the button and Morra snap-called.

Jan Eckert: {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Roberto Morra: {K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}

Eckert was in dire straights and needed tens or clubs if he was to survive. The {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop provided one club, the {3-Clubs} on the turn the second and the {A-Clubs} on the river completed the backdoor miracle. Eckert doubled to 1,265,000 while Morra slipped to 895,000.
