Watson Doubles Through Pinsky

donpeters • Level 9: 400-800, 0 ante

Mike Watson began the day with 6,900 in chips, but he's since worked his way back over the 20,000-chip mark. Most recently, Watson doubled up through Vadim Pinsky.

Watson began the hand from the under-the-gun position and opened with a pot-sized raise to 2,800. Pinsky called from the cutoff seat, and everyone else folded. On the {9-Spades}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop, Watson moved all in 6,900, and while this was larger than the 6,800-chip pot, Pinsky quickly matched it, and the cards were turned over.

Watson tabled the {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. Pinsky had the {J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}.

The turn brought the {6-Clubs}, and then the river delivered the {5-Diamonds}. Both of those kept Watson in front, and he doubled up. Pinsky was left with 15,000 in chips.
