Watson Doubles

Mike Watson

From under the gun, 2008 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event champion John Juanda raised to 60,000. Play then folded to Mike Watson on the button. With his short stack of 145,000, Watson reraised all in. The two blinds folded, then Juanda called.

Juanda: {A-Spades}{8-Spades}
Watson: {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

The flop came down clean for Watson when the {K-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} rolled out. The turn was the {7-Spades} to give Watson a set of sevens, but Juanda could now hit a spade to win the pot as long as it didn't pair the board. The river completed the board with the {K-Diamonds}, and Watson doubled.

On the next hand, action folded to Watson and he raised all in. No one called, but Watson was still able to chip up a bit and he's now back over 400,000.
