Tens For Emmons

Level 3 : 50-100, 0 ante

David Emmons raised from late position but then the player on the button and the player in the big blind both moved all in. Emmons had both the other players covered but was faced with whether he wanted to risk a portion of his stack against two opponents. After deliberating for a bit, Emmons decided to call.

Emmons: {10-Clubs}{10-}
Opponent 1: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Opponent 2: {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}

As it turned out, Emmons had made a great call and when the board ran out {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{4-Clubs}, the other two players headed to the rail and Emmons' stack grew to 6,500.
