Engel Crippled, Then Doubles Up


Ari Engel has just had a roller coaster of a few hands that has seen him win and lose a big pot. Dale Eberle came in for a raise, and Engel put in a third bet. Action folded to Jordan Rich in the big blind, who made the call, as did Eberle. The flop came {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{6-Spades}, and it checked around to Engel, who bet out. Rich raised, and Eberle folded. Engel called, and the turn brought the {2-Diamonds}. Rich bet out and Engel called, and the same thing happened on the river, the {10-Diamonds}. Rich showed {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}, and Engel mucked.

On the very next hand, Eberle once again came in for a raise, and Engel once again three bet. This time it folded around to Eberle, who made the call. The flop came out {10-Spades}{4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}. The two got in a raising war that saw Engel's last 46,000 get in the middle. The two flipped their cards up, and Engel was in bad shape.

Eberle: {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Engel: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

Needing a jack, the turn brought the {8-Clubs}, giving Engel an inside straight draw as well, and that came on the river when the {9-Clubs} hit. Engel secured the double up, but he's still one of the short stacks.
