Mortensen Doubles

Connor Drinan loses a big pot.

Connor Drinan and Carlos Mortensen were heads up with the board reading {a-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. After a series of bets and raises, Mortensen was all in and at risk.

Mortensen: {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Drinan: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}

The {q-Diamonds} on the turn was clean, but the {10-Hearts} spiked on the river, giving Mortensen a winning flush. The 2001 Main Event Champion doubled to over 170,000 chips, while Drinan is left with under 20,000.
