Event #36: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Pham Doubles Up

David Pham

Matthew Berkey raised from early position making it 4,000 to anyone who wanted to see a flop. He received to takers Sudhakara Kattamuri, and David Pham. The dealer put out three cards and they came {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}. After Pham checked Berkey put out a 6,500 bet. Kattamuri folded and Pham called.

With a {8-Spades} on the turn Pham checked again and Berkey after some consideration put Pham all in. Pham instantly called and flipped over {J-}{10-} for a straight. Berkey sheepishly showed {A-}{J-}.

A meaningless {10-Spades} rang off for the river and Pham was able to double up off one of the biggest stacks in the room.
