Event #60: $50,000 Poker Players Championship

Cates Nearly Doubles Through Leng

OHairDJ • Level 27: 75,000-150,000, 150,000 ante

Limit Hold'em

Ryan Leng raised from the small blind and Dan Cates called in the big.

Leng check-called a bet from Cates on the {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{j-Spades} flop and both players checked on the {9-Hearts} turn.

The {k-Clubs} completed the board and Leng bet. Cates raised all in for his last 900,000 and Leng folded the {a-Hearts}{5-Spades}, exposing his top pair.

Cates smashed {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} for the second pair on the table and celebrated vividly before he scooped the pot.
