Papola Pops a Double


Jeffrey Papola raised to 32,000 from under the gun and Alexander Ivarsson called from the small blind. Justin Smith called from the big blind. The flop came down {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{5-Spades} and action checked to the preflop raiser. Papola bet out 48,000 and Ivarsson raised to 125,000. Smith folded and then Papola moved all in for 227,000 more (352,000). Ivarsson called.

Ivarsson held the {K-Spades}{6-Spades} for top pair of kings, but he was out-kicked by the {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades} or Papola. The turn brought the {9-Diamonds} and the river completed the board with the {A-Diamonds}.

Papola was able to double up to roughly 750,000 while Ivarsson slipped to 600,000 in chips.
