Holden Doubles to Over 4 Million

Chad_Holloway

Sam Holden raised to 100,000 and received a call from Jacob Balsiger. Jean Malherbe proceeded to three-bet to 330,000, Holden four-bet 595,000, and Balsiger got out of the way. Malherbe proceeded to move all in, and Holden snap-called off for 2,025,000 total.

Showdown

Malherbe{A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Holden{Q-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}

Holden had recently doubled with pocket jacks, and now it was time for him to do so with queens as the board ran out {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. With that, Holden is above average and primed to make a serious push for his second final table in as many years.
