Petrov Doubles to Leave Jacobson Short

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

Yordan Petrov raised from under the gun and Martin Jacobson called on the button before the big blind also came along. Petrov continued for 8,500 on the {q-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop, and only Jacobson called.

Petrov fired again on the {9-Hearts} turn for 25,000, and the Swede once again made the call.

There was now 85,000 in the pot, and Petrov thought through his next move for a few minutes before announcing all in for 59,000 after the {4-Spades} had fallen. Jacobson had him covered and allowed himself some thinking time before making the call.

Yordan Petrov: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Martin Jacobson: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Both players had a pair of aces but Petrov's king kicker played, and he doubled up to 240,000.

Just a few hands later, Jacobson would be left even shorter after he called Clifford Pappas' button all in from the small blind.

Jacobson: {k-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Clifford Pappas: {a-Spades}{7-Clubs}

Board: {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Jacobson missed the board, and the 2014 Main Event Champion was left with just 25,000 to play with after the dinner break.
