Vlad Darie Cracks Aces and Finds a Huge Double Through Chad Layne

ElleSriracha • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Vlad Darie

Michael Gathy raised to 40,000 from under the gun and Vlad Darie three-bet to 135,000 from middle position. Chad Layne was in the small blind and went into the tank for about a minute before moving all in for 719,000. Gathy had a long think before releasing his hand, and Darie called for his last 608,000.

Darie was at risk with {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs} and was in rough shape against the {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds} of Layne.

The flop came {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Layne looked over to see if Darie had the king of clubs, and he immediately put his head in his hands when he saw he did. The turn was the {q-Clubs} and Darie's rail erupted when he pulled ahead with a flush, leaving Layne drawing dead to the {9-Diamonds} on the river.
