Butler Doubles then Busts

[user80015] • Level 16: 1,000-3,000, 700 ante
Ashly Butler

Ashly Butler found a much needed double to 18,000 at the hands of Helmut Koch.

Butler's board ran out {3-Hearts}{4-Spades} / {2-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} / {2-Diamonds} for two pair to better Koch's {A-Hearts}{7-Spades} / {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} / {A-Spades}.

However a few hands later Butler would complete after the action folded round to him and David Chiu would defend his bring in. Butler bet fourth and fifth with Chiu raising to 12,000 on fifth only to have Butler move all in for 12,700 total. Chiu called and both player's boards looked as follows.

Butler: {8-Spades}{2-Clubs} / {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Chiu: {A-Spades}{J-Hearts} / {2-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{J-Spades}

Butler caught the {7-Spades} on sixth as Chiu spiked the {5-Spades} before the {8-Hearts} completed his board on seventh. Unfortunately for Butler he was unable to improve and was forced to the rail in 19th place as Chiu moved to 235,000 in chips.
