Alvarado Wakes Up With Kings


After Timothy Adams had opened from the button, a short-stacked JC Alvarado moved all in from the big blind for 50,500. Adams made the call and the cards were turned up:

Adams: {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}
Alvarado: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}

According to the PokerNews Odds Calculator, Alvarado was a 81.12% favorite to win the hand. The {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Spades} flop saw his chances increase to 92.02%, while the {4-Spades} turn made it 95.45%; in fact, the only cards Adams could win with was one of the two remaining threes. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {7-Spades}, which actually improved Alvarado to a flush.

Meanwhile, Philipp Gruissem has opted to fire a second bullet and is now seated between Adams and Alvarado.
