Alexander Greenblatt Doubles Through Nicolas Chouity

will_shill • Level 19: 50,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Pavel Veksler opened to 23,000 from the cutoff and Alexander Greenblatt three-bet all in for 59,000 from the small blind. Greenblatt was the second shortest chip stack at the last break, and is hoping to get his tournament back on track in the last level before the end of Day 3.

Day 2 chip leader Nicolas Chouity was in the big blind and he thought a while before four-betting to 100,000. Veksler folded and the cards were turned over.

Greenblatt's tournament life was in the balance with {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} while Chouity held {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. However, the queen on a {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{8-Hearts} flop set him well on his way to a double up, and the board ran out {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades} securing that Greenblatt survived.
