Event #49: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

McLaughlin Doubles

YorkshirePud • Level 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Ami Barer raised to 2,000 from the cutoff and the button reraised to 4,500. Marc-Etienne McLaughlin four-bet to 14,500 from the big blind and Barer folded. The small blind then moved all-in and McLaughlin called.

McLaughlin: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}
Big Blind: {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

"Interesting," said Selbst when the hole cards were revealed.

The big blind's pocket threes held until the river of the {2-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs}{A-Clubs} board, the ace on the river winning the pot for McLaughlin and catapulting him to 100,000 chips.
