Schoder Doubles

[user101598]

On the first hand of play, 2012 WSOP bracelet winner Dung Nguyen opened to 80,000 in the cutoff. Jonathan Schoder moved all in for 465,000 on the button, and the action folded back to Nguyen, who tank-called.

The {7-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Hearts} flop didn't directly connect with Schoder, but it gave him a backdoor flush draw and three extra outs to counterfeit Nguyen. The {a-Spades} slammed on the turn, giving Schoder a pair of aces, and the {9-Hearts} bricked on the river.

Schoder doubled to about 1.2 million chips, while Nguyen dipped to 1.415 million.
