Meltzer Makes It Look Easy

LoriPersinger • Level 11: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

An early-position player raised it to 4,000 and got one caller. Jordan Meltzer, next to act, moved all in, and when action folded to the small-blind player he moved all in for less. The original raiser tanked for a bit before folding, but the other player remaining in the hand called and was also all in.

Jordan Meltzer: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Small-Blind Player: {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
All-in Player: {a-Spades}{9-Spades}

The flop of {j-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} hit all three players, but Meltzer smashed it the hardest, hitting middle set versus the bottom set and top pair of his two opponents. The {8-Diamonds} turn and {k-Clubs} rivered secured the double-knockout for Meltzer in only his second hand at the table.
