Deepstack Crusher Underwood Doubles Through Gagnon
Level 36 : 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante
Benjamin Underwood has been crushing it in the lower buy-in Deepstacks this summer. Earlier, he finished fourth in Event #9: $600 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack ($135,959) and fifth in Event #37: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack ($74,435). Now, Underwood is at his third final table of the series after incredulously navigating his way through another bumper field.
Underwood's third time could still be the charm after winning an all-in versus Samuel Gagnon. It was Gagnon who raised to 1,200,000, Underwood who three-bet shoved 9,800,000 from the big blind, and Gagnon who snap-called.
Underwood's kings held up on the board for the early double at the unofficial final table.
