Event 56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Fischer Doubles Through Eastgate


Action started with Peter Eastgate raising under the gun to 37,000. Action folded to Bastian Fischer in the hijack, and he put in a three-bet to 74,000. It folded back around to Eastgate, who thought for about 15 seconds before raising all in. Fischer quickly called off his remaining stack, and the two tabled their cards.

Fischer: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Eastgate: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}

The flop gave Eastgate some hope, as it came {6-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{j-Spades}. Eastgate could now catch a queen or a spade to win the hand, and while the turn was black card, it was the {4-Clubs}. Fischer was looking to fade the river for the double up, and he did that, as the {a-Diamonds} gave him the pot.

After that hand, Fischer is up to to 950,000, while Eastgate drops to 700,000.
