Event #49: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Deuce from Belarus

Taylor Larkin

After a long period of raise-fold, we eventually witnessed only our second all-in showdown of this encounter, and again it was short stack Taylor Larkin who had his nose in front. With Michael Linn raising to what I understand was 200,000 (although they appear to be whispering their raises), Larkin announced all-in and Linn made the call.

Linn: {J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Larkin: {A-Spades}{3-Spades}

The {4-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop improved Larkin's hand, but had Linn still in search of one of six outs, one of which emerged on the {J-Hearts} turn. But just as your blogging team were ordering pints at the bar, a deuce from Belarus ({2-Spades}) hit the river to double Larkin up.

The final figure sliding across the baize was 1,175,000, meaning Larking is now back up to around 2,400,000.
