Event #20: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Martin Doubles through Schaaf

• Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Gian Carlos Oliveri raised to 38,000 from middle position. Both Alex Martin and Lex Veldhuis called in position before James Schaaf three bet to 150,000 from the small blind. Oliveri folded but Martin moved all in for 654,000 total. Veldhuis folded and Schaaf went deep into the tank. After a few minutes he decided to call but was upset to see his {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} behind the {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} of Martin.

The board ran out a sweat free {j-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} and Martin doubled up. At the break, he is our chip leader with 1.985.
