[user253757] • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Joe Cada Has Played Patiently, and He Finally Found a Double Here at the Final Table

Hand #73: Cada opened for 80,000 from the hijack, Polychronopoulos three-bet for 265,000 from the big blind, and Cada moved all-in for his last 825,000. Polychronopoulos snap-called and revealed his {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}, but found himself way behind the {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} tabled by Cada. The final board ran out {9-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs}{7-Spades}{7-Clubs}, and Cada's queens gave him the double.

Hand #74: Flush with chips from his win in the last hand, Cada opened for 80,000 under the gun, and the table folded to the champ.

Hand #75: Polychronopoulos raised to 90,000 on his button, Cada called to defend his big blind, and the flop fell {6-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}. Cada checked, Polychronopoulos bet 125,000, and Cada called to see the turn come {2-Hearts}. Both players checked the deuce, as well as the {Q-Spades} on the river, and Cada's {A-Spades}{3-Hearts} for ace-high was good enough.

Hand #76: Taylor opened for 90,000 in the hijack, and the action folded around to Mutke in the big blind, but he decided to release.
