Event #32: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Latimer Fades The Deck To Double Up

Adam Latimer

Michael Aron raised to 24,000, and Adam Latimer shoved for 95,000 in the small blind. Aron thought for just a few seconds before making the call.

Latimer: {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Aron: {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

The flop came {3-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, giving Aron some outs to chop the pot. The turn brought the {4-Diamonds}, and Aron could knock Latimer out with a seven, six, or diamond, and could chop with a three, four, or two. Despite all those outs, Latimer survived when the {8-Spades} hit the river, and secured the double up.
