Hughes Gets a Much-Needed Double Up

ajlamers • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante

There have only been two hands played on Table 402 since the action resumed and much of the delay has come from James Hughes who was on the short stack. A few players have asked to go hand-for-hand but the tournament director has chosen to just monitor the situation.

The action was folded to Hughes in the small blind who thought for a couple of minutes before moving his stack of 190,000 into the middle. Ben Keeline took a moment but eventually called it off.

James Hughes: {3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}
Ben Keeline: {4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}

The flop came {q-Spades}{j-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and Hughes remained in the lead with his pair of threes. The turn was the {2-Clubs} to give Keeline the larger flush draw but the {8-Diamonds} secured a double up for Hughes.
