Armstrong Doubles Again

[user101598] • Level 26: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Jamie Armstrong

Hand #30: Darryll Fish open-jammed on the button, and both blinds released.

Hand #31: Trevor Pope raised to 65,000 out of the small blind, Jared Hamby defended, and Pope led out for 50,000 on a flop of {7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}. Hamby folded.

Hand #32: Jamie Armstrong opened-shoved for 390,000 from under the gun, Pope called on the button, and both blinds released.

Armstrong: {k-Spades}{q-Spades}
Pope: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

Armstrong didn't flop a pair, but when the dealer spread {5-Spades}{3-Spades}{5-Diamonds} he picked up nine extra outs to make a flush. The {6-Spades} turned, giving Armstrong said flush, but he could still be eliminated with a five or an eight on the river.

The {10-Clubs} completed the board, missing Pope and doubling Armstrong once again.
