Watson Completes Comeback to Eliminate Roberts

Chad_Holloway • Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante
Mike Watson

Last level Brian Roberts doubled through Mike Watson, a hand that left the latter with just 1,500 in chips. Amazingly Watson was able to work that stack back into contention, and in a fitting twist of fate, he just eliminated the man who had crippled him in the first place.

We missed the acton unfold, but we do know Roberts got his last 17,000 or so all in preflop against Watson.

Watson: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Roberts: {k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{8-Hearts}

The {5-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop delivered Roberts a flush draw, but he watched helplessly as the {A-Hearts} blanked on the turn followed by the {6-Clubs} on the river. Roberts took his leave in 14th place while Watson chipped up to 95,000.
