Jejelowo Catches Straight to Double


A.J. Jejelowo opened to 90,000 from early position and was called by Manos Foudoulakis. Michael Esposito tagged along from the small blind and the three saw a flop of {4-Spades}{9-Clubs}{7-Spades}. Esposito and Jejelowo checked to Foudoulakis who fired 125,000. Esposito got out of the way and Jejelowo made it 375,000 to go. Foudoulakis called and the two were heads up to the turn.

The turn brought the {Q-Diamonds} and Jejelowo moved all in for 1,940,000. Manos called and showed {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} which was ahead of Jejelowo's {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. Jejelowo was looking to make his straight, and did exactly that when the {J-Diamonds} peeled off on the river.

Jejelowo was able to double up this hand to about 4,900,000 while Manos was left crippled at 230,000.
