Clinton Alford Wins the Race

[user197301] • Level 8: 200-400, 50 ante

We watched one player raise to 650 from early position and Clinton Alford reraise all-in for his last 3,450 from the hijack. The player in the cutoff also decided to move all-in and the original raiser got out of the way.

Showdown:

Alford: {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}

With big slick against a pocket pair, the players found themselves in the classic race situation. The flop of {6-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{8-Spades} was a good one for Alford and the {J-Diamonds} on the turn kept him in the lead. After the {Q-Spades} arrived on the river, his pair of nines had held up for the double.
