Andersen Scores a Double Up

ajlamers • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

Matthew Ireland opened to 16,000 in middle position and Christian Andersen shoved all in for 70,000 on the button. The blinds folded and Ireland asked for a count before making the call.

Christian Andersen: {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Matthew Ireland: {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}

The flop of {9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} put Andersen in the lead after hitting a nine. The {j-Spades} on the turn made his hand event better and the {5-Spades} on the river confirmed his double up.
