Action Flop, Action Turn Results in a Xu Double Up

ajlamers • Level 7: 300-600, 600 ante

There was a massive pot building on Table 299 and Yicheng Xu was heads-up with Marko Maher. The board read {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and it appeared that both players stuck in around 20,000 chips apiece on the turn.

The river brought the {6-Diamonds} and Xu moved all in for 41,400. Maher quickly called and Xu flipped over {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} for quad sevens. Maher showed his {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}, revealing he wasn't even drawing dead on the turn.

"That was an action flop," Maher said.

"It was an action turn," Xu replied.
