Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Schaerf Doubles Through Hallam

YorkshirePud • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

David Schaerf has doubled through Antony Hallam in a battle of the blinds.

The action passed around to Schaerf in the small blind and he moved all in for 29,300 in total. Hallam decided to look him up and the cards were flipped onto their backs.

Schaerf: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}
Hallam: {A-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}

Hallam caught a seven on the {3-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop, but still needed more help from the board in order to prevent a double up for Schaerf. The {2-Spades} on the turn gave Hallam outs to a straight, but the {9-Hearts} on the river improved Schaerf to an unnecessary set of nines and the double up was confirmed.
