Somerville Cracks Tens with Nines to Double Through Buchman

Jason Somerville on Day 5.

Eric Buchman moved all in for 1.6 million and cleared the field all the way around to Jason Somerville on the button. He called off for 570,000, the blinds got out of the way, and the cards were turned up:

Showdown
Somerville: {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Buchman: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}

Somerville was dominated and his Main Event hopes were bleak. Luckily for him, the {3-Clubs}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts} flop delivered him a set and renewed life. Neither the {8-Hearts} turn nor {2-Clubs} river helped Buchman, and Somerville scored a double.
