Popham Spikes Huge Double to Leave Yogo Crippled

Level 24 : 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Hand 122: Morgan Popham limped the button and both blinds came along to see a {8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} flop. All three players checked, then the {K-Hearts} landed on the turn before BrandonShack-Harris tossed in 75,000 from the small blind.

Iori Yogo quickly kicked his cards into the muck from the big and Popham made the call. The {2-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Shack-Harris tapped the table indicating a check, then Popham tossed in 90,000 before Shack-Harris made the call and tabled {9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{x-}{x-} for two pair to win the pot.

Hand 123: Brandon Shack-Harris opened to 60,000 from the button only to have Iori Yogo announce pot from the small blind before sliding out 210,000. Morgan Popham then moved all in for 275,000, Yogo committed his 305,000 total, and Shack-Harris mucked.

Yogo: {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Popham: {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}

With Popham holding the slight advantage, the dealer spread a {4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} flop, before finishing off the board with the {6-Hearts} and {3-Diamonds} to see Popham double through to 610,000 while Yogo was left with just 20,000.
