Event #34: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold'em

Deadman Comes Alive

• Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante

Kevin Wang was on the button and facing a raise from a player in early position. Wang stuck in a three-bet to 220,000 and Simon Deadman four-bet shoved all in for 780,000 in the small blind. The initial raiser folded and Wang made the call.

Simon Deadman: {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
Kevin Wang: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

Despite being dominated, Deadman pulled ahead on the flop of {k-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. The {j-Spades} on the turn gave Wang a straight draw but the {3-Hearts} on the river ensured Deadman of a double up.

"That's king-queen?" another player across the table asked. "I thought you had kings!"

"Well I have two clubs," Deadman responded. "They didn't come last time so I thought it was more likely they would hit this time."
