Andress Doubles Through Reard

• Level 6: 300-600, 600 ante

Mike Watson opened from the hijack, John Andress called on the button and so did Alexandre Reard in the big blind.

The flop came {3-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{2-Spades}, Reard and Watson both checked. Andress bet 2,000, Reard raised to 8,300 for Watson to fold. Andress looked at Reard and then called.

The turn was the {j-Spades}, Reard barreled a bet of 12,000 over the line and Andress took a few seconds before making the call.

The river completed the board with the {7-Clubs}, Reard shoved with the bigger stack and Andress snap-called. Reard showed {10-Spades}{3-Spades} for the pair of treys and Andres quickly flipped over {5-Spades}{4-Spades} for the flopped straight to double up for the 37,300 he had behind.

The players have just gone for the last break of the day which lasts 30 minutes this time.
