Eastgate Doubles Through Borg


Action started with David Borg raising under the gun. Peter Eastgate was next to act, and he shoved all in for 1.515 million. It folded back around to Borg, and he made the call. The cards were tabled, and Eastgate was in great shape.

Eastgate: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Borg: {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

This final table has been full of suckouts, but it looked like we weren't going to have that here, as the flop came down {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{10-Spades}, giving Eastgate a set and leaving Borg drawing to runner runner to win or chop. Of course, poker is rarely that easy, so the {q-Clubs} hit the turn, giving Borg eight outs for a chop. For once though, there was no miracle river, as the {7-Hearts} came.

After the hand, Eastgate is up to 3.1 million, while Borg drops down to 1.6 million.
