2014 World Series of Poker

Event #6: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout
Days: 3

Hands #2-5: Loube Doubles Through Trager

Level 2 : 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Hand #2: Dimitar Danchev opened to 16,000 and David Trager three-bet to 52,000. The action passed back to Danchev and he folded.

Hand #3: Douglas Foster opened to 20,000 and Jon Lane three-bet to 69,000 with Foster making the call as the flop fell {J-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} and Lane continued for 85,000.

Foster made the call and when the {Q-Spades} landed on the turn and Lane checked, he moved all in for roughly 300,000 with Lane quickly folding.

Hand #4: David Trager opened to 23,000 from the cutoff only to have Alex Bolotin three-bet the big blind to 75,000. Trager folded and Bolotin was pushed the pot.

Hand #5: David Trager entered the pot for 27,000 and Steven Loube made the call from the button with Trager betting out 65,000 in the dark as the dealer eventually spread a {2-Spades}{Q-Spades}{J-Hearts} flop.

Loube bumped it up to 150,000 and Trager instantly moved all in for roughly 450,000 with Loube snap-calling for his 326,000-chip stack.

Loube: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Trager: {A-Spades}{J-Spades}

With Loube in the lead, he would have to fade any ace or spade, and when the turn and river landed the {6-Clubs} and {3-Diamonds}, he doubled through to roughly 740,000 in chips.
