Event #56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Battle of the Johns (Round 1)

John Horvatich doubles up!

From under the gun, John Horvatich raised all-in for 555,000 and Nemer Haddad folded before John Borzio called from the button. The others got out of the way and the cards were tabled:

Borzio: {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
Horvatich: {J-Spades}{2-Clubs}

Borzio picked up some of Horvatich's outs after the flop of {10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}, but incredibly, the {2-Hearts} appeared on the turn to give Horvatich bottom pair, which improved to two pair after the repeat {10-Clubs} fell on the river to give him the double-up.
