Watson Spikes a Double and Takes Huge Lead


On the button, Mike Watson raised to 240,000 before John Juanda reraised to 750,000. Watson tanked for a minute or two, then reraised all in. Juanda perked up and called holding the {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}. Watson was behind and dominated with the {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}.

The flop came down {9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades} to keep Juanda in front. Watson didn't find much help, but did pick up one club to give him runner-runner flush options.

The turn was the {J-Spades} and just what Watson ordered as he came from behind to pair his jack. The river completed the board with the {6-Hearts} and that was it.

Watson was all in for 3.9 million at the final count of his chips, and he doubled to a massive chip lead. Juanda was left with under ten big blinds.
