Turner Turns a Lock

simkha • Level 32: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante
Joshua Turner

Jimmy Poper raised to 250,000 from under the gun, Joshua Turner shoved from the button for about 2.12 million, and Poper called with a covering stack.

Jimmy Poper: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Joshua Turner: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}

The two players were racing for the pot and Turner needed to hold up in order to stay alive. The {8-Hearts}{8-Spades}{3-Spades} flop missed both players but the {J-Diamonds} turn gave Turner jacks full to leave Poper drawing dead. After the {6-Diamonds} hit the river, Turner took the pot to double up.
