Monster Double Up For Adams Through Rubie

Timothy Adams raised to 48,000 on the button and Brendon Rubie three-bet to 112,000 from the small blind. James Schaaf folded his big blind and Adams four-bet to 243,000. Rubie asked for a count of what Adams had behind, about 1.4 million, and called.

The flop fell {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and Rubie checked it to Adams who bet 201,000. Rubie put together chips for a raise, and a hefty raise it was. He made it 976,000 to go, sending Adams into the tank about two minutes before he re-raised all in for 1,552,000 total. Rubie shrugged and called, turning over {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a flush draw and straight draw.

Adams tabled {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades} for ace high and was ahead, but had plenty of outs to fade. He did just that as the {Q-Hearts} turn and {2-Clubs} river gave him the pot with ace high.

"He's the sickest," said Tristan Wade, on the rail to sweat his friend. "Coin it. Sickest."

James Schaaf raised to 50,000 on the button and Brendon Rubie defended his big blind.

The flop came down {Q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and both players checked. The {6-Hearts} hit the turn and that's where the action started. Rubie checked it to Schaaf who bet 75,000, but Rubie had a check-raise in mind when he made it 231,000. Schaaf fired back with a re-raise to 600,000 which Rubie opted to call, landing the {10-Hearts} on the river. Rubie took a few moments before he checked, as did Schaaf.

Rubie tabled {6-Clubs}{6-Spades} for quads to take down the sizable pot and up his stack to 2,972,000. Schaaf tumbled to 874,000.
