Event #42: $600 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em / Pot-Limit Omaha Deepstack

Double for Ma Lifts His Stack from Surface of Felt

• Level 38: 400,000-800,000, 800,000 ante
Stephen Ma

No-Limit Hold'em

Stephen Ma, the red warning light blinking on his stack, moved all in preflop for 725,000. Over to Dan Matsuzuki, who repopped it to 1,700,000. This discouraged the rest of the table, and the hands were on their backs:

Ma: {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades} - a monster considering his one big blind shove.
Matsuzuki: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} - a monster in any situation.

The flop of {5-Hearts}{6-Spades}{j-Hearts} brought a life-saving jack for Ma, the turned {9-Hearts} a flush-draw sweat for Matsuzuki, and the river {3-Diamonds} a double for the super-short stack after his loss to Ahuja.
