Becker Turns Bingo to Double Through Hallaert

Jan_Kores • Niveau 5: 200-400, 400 ante

Under the gun, Kenny Hallaert checked to Johannes Becker on his left, with the board showing {4-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Becker fired 2,000 into about 4,500 and Hallaert called.

The river came {9-Spades} and Hallaert checked again. Becker cut out a bet of 7,100, leaving himself with shrapnel. Hallaert slid forward a tower of chips to cover Becker's 7,425 and Becker immediately called off.

Hallaert had flopped a set with {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}, but Becker turned a higher set with {8-Spades}{8-Clubs} to pull ahead, and consequently double, in the inevitable cooler.
