Event #48: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Christopher Doubles, Then Eliminated


Tom Christopher was short stacked when he got the last of his chips in preflop, and was called down by Jonathan Little. The players flipped their cards, and it was a classic coin flip.

Little: {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Christopher: {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Christopher stormed into the lead when the flop came {8-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. The turn was the {a-Hearts}, and the river gave Christoper unnecessary trips, as it came the {k-Clubs}.

Merely seconds after he had just stacked his newly won chips, Christopher was right back at it, going all in again under the gun on the very next hand. Action folded to Milad Jorshari, who made the call. Everyone else got out of the way, and Christopher saw that he was dominated by Jorshari.

Jorshari: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}
Christopher: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

The flop came out {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{5-Diamonds}, giving Christoper no help. The {a-Spades} hit the turn, which actually helped Christopher, upping his outs to the remaining queens in the deck. However, the river came the {7-Hearts}, and Christopher was sent to the rail.
