Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Young Slips, Then Doubles

OHairDJ • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

Jordan Young's stack can't seem to find steady ground as of late.

In a recent hand, Young raised from middle position and was shoved all-in on for about 108,000 from a player to his left. Young made the call but needed help, as his {A-Spades}{9-Diamonds} was dominated by his opponent's {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}

The board ran out {4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}, forcing Young to double his opponent up and slipping to just 103,000.

The next hand, a player limped from under-the-gun and Young went all-in from middle position. The limper called and had Young in bad shape.

Young: {10-Spades}{K-Spades}
Opponent: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}

The flop came the {6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, pairing Young and giving him a few more outs to improve.

The turn fell the {10-Hearts}, giving Young trips and propelling him into the lead.

The river blanked a {2-Diamonds} and Young doubled up to 220,000.
