Maag Gets 2x From Hall

MrCleverFox • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Nicco Maag

Action folded all the way around to the small blind where Nicco Maag jammed for 177,000 total.

Thomas Hall in the big blind went into the tank, and after about a minute and a half he made the call.

Hall: {A-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Maag: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

The flop cam down {4-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{J-Spades} giving Hall outs to a backdoor straight, but those outs were taken away when the {4-Diamonds} hit the turn. The river was the {Q-Diamonds} securing the double up for Maag early here on Day 3 as he shoots to make the final table.
