Yang Doubles Through Varnell

simkha • Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

Action folded to Craig Varnell on the button and he raised to 175,000. Shaome Yang three-bet shoved from the big blind for 280,000 and Varnell called to put him at risk.

Craig Varnell: {Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Shaome Yang: {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}

Yang had the preflop advantage and Varnell needed to improve in order to stack him. The flop fell {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} to give Yang the nut straight, leaving Varnell drawing thin. The {7-Hearts} turn and {J-Spades} river changed nothing, so Yang took the pot to double up.
