Lin Busts Birnbaum and Doubles Through Tiangsheng

Tboss • Level 33: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

Michael Lin, Qi Tiangsheng, and Nancy Birnbaum all got their chips in the middle preflop.

Michael Lin: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}
Qi Tiangsheng: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Nancy Birnbaum: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

Lin was in great shape, and was had the middle stack, with Birnbaum being the one at risk. The flop came {3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} giving Birnbaum a gutshot straight draw to chop, but the turn {3-Spades} and river {a-Diamonds} gave Lin aces full of threes, doubling through Tiangsheng and eliminating Birnbaum.
