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

Gordon Makes the Hero Call to Double Through Driscoll

[user197301] • Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

We caught the action with the board reading {7-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and a short-stacked John Gordon facing an all-in bet by Jonathan Driscoll. Gordon went deep into the tank and began talking to Drsicoll, trying to draw a bead on what his opponent held.

After stating assertively "see, I don't think you want a call," Gordon decided to risk his tournament life with his {7-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, which was good for middle pair and a flush draw.

Driscoll showed down his {A-Hearts}{10-Spades} and optimistically said "I've got a ton of outs," as the dealer prepared to burn and turn. He needed to spike an ace, a ten or any heart to win the pot.

River: {K-Clubs}

Gordon's incredible call panned out and he doubled through Driscoll. Complete chip counts for this table are coming shortly.
