Secker Cuts Tushnet in Half

YorkshirePud • Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Hans Secker checked from the big blind on a {2-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts} board, Joel Tushnet bet 6,000 from middle position and Secker responded with a check-raise to 15,000. Tushnet counted Secker's stack and as soon as he had counted the last chip he announced that he was all-in.

Secker seemed genuinely pained in his decision making, squirming in his seat, rubbing his hair before he finally pulled the trigger and called.

Secker: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Tushnet: {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

Although Secker had the best hand, he was actually a slight underdog due to Tushnet being able to catch an eight, ten or club to beat him. The {3-Hearts} was a safe card for Secker, as was the {J-Hearts} on the river and a delighted Secker doubled up. Tishnet did not look too pleased with the outcome.
