Duhamel Spikes Two Outer to Double Through Merson

zedmaster84 • Level 16: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

First Jonathan Duhamel defended his big blind against a raise from Richard Lyndaker and bet 27,000 on the {2-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} {3-Hearts} flop only to fold against the shove of Lyndaker. His opponent flashed the {A-Hearts} and Duhamel laughed, saying "you got it."

One hand later, Greg Merson raised to 16,000 from the cutoff and Duhamel moved all in for 250,000 from the small blind. David Steicke folded in the big blind and Merson snap-called.

Merson: {K-Diamonds} {K-Hearts}
Duhamel: {2-Spades} {2-Hearts}

The {A-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} {5-Hearts} flop was no good for the Canadian and the {J-Clubs} didn't help either, but the dealer burned and turned the {2-Diamonds} on the river to award Duhamel the double up.
