Ryan Herold, Day 1D Level 12

The action is picked up on the turn with the board reading 9♣5♠2♠5♣ and ~22k sitting in the middle. Ryan Herold led out the turn into a single opponent for 12.5k and was shoved on for 52k total. After carefully considering his decision, Herold made the call and they tabled their hands:

Herold J♠J♣ vs Villain 8♠8♦ Pot: ~126k

River: 3♠

Herold needed to only dodge a two outer and managed to do so. After the hand, he moves up to ~220k and gets a foothold among the larger stacks heading into Level 12.
