Galfond Cracks Sulsky's Kings to Double

Josh_Cahlik • Level 6: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

Ben Sulsky had the button. He opened to 32,000 and Phil Galfond replied by moving all in for 256,000. Sulsky snapped him off and the hands were rolled over:

Sulsky: {K-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Galfond: {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts}

Galfond paired his small card on the {4-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop but it was still not enough to best Sulsky's cowboys. The turn, however, catapulted Galfond into the lead when it brought the {A-Spades} for two pair. Galfond finished off the hand with a full boat with the {a-Clubs} on the river and he was able to double into the chip with with 512,000 in chips. After the hand Sulsky still had 160,000 worth of chips behind with an add-on.

Chip Counts
Phil Galfond us 512,000 224,000
Ben Sulsky us 448,000 -224,000
