Looking For a Double Up

  • Parx Big Stax XXX 300 12:15PM
  • Level 26: 25,000/50,000/50,000
  • Total Players: 2293
  • Players Remaining: 32

Less than 5 minutes into play on day 3 and the field had already lost 3 short stacks: Augusto Honrado, Sean Hu, and Kenny Lay.   At this point in the game with blinds going up, a double up is needed sooner rather than later, for much of the field.  Sai Wang had a bit of luck with his shorter stack, when David McConachie raised the SB to 140k pre-flop and Wang called from the BB.

Flop: 84A McConachie bet 80k, Wang raised to 175k, and McConachie went all in, well covering Wang, and Wang called.

Board ran out: 3h5s

McConachie: J8hh for a pair of eights

Wang: A10dd for a pair of Aces to win the hand and double up his remaining 575k.
