Malm Doubles Huge; Takes Chip Lead

Josh_Cahlik • Level 28
Michael Malm & Steven Wolansky

No-Limit Hold'em

Steven Wolansky had the button. He popped it up to 48,000. Michael Malm three-bet to 124,000 and Wolanski called.

The flop brought {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and Malm continued out for 100,000. Wolansky thought for a moment before announcing all in. Malm stood up from the table and slapped {K-Hearts}{K-Spades} face up on the table, announcing call in the process.

"Wow," said Wolansky, meekly showing {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}.

The dealer rapped the table and produced the {a-Clubs} on the turn.

"CLUB!" said Wolansky suddenly.

Fortunately for Malm, Wolansky's request was denied as the {2-Hearts} touched down on the river and secured him a double up to 1.872 million in chips.
