Zimmerman Doubles Through Varnell

[user339870] • Niveau 31: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante
Seth Zimmerman
Seth Zimmerman

Seth Zimmerman raised to 350,000 from the button, Craig Varnell made a pot-sized reraise to 1,150,000 from the small blind, and Zimmerman called to put himself at risk.

Seth Zimmerman: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Craig Varnell: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}

Varnell had the preflop edge and Zimmerman needed to improve in order to stay alive. Both players made trips on the {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}{9-Hearts} flop but Zimmerman had the lead with the better kicker. The {J-Hearts} on the turn gave Varnell straight and flush draws, but the {7-Spades} changed nothing, so Zimmerman took the pot to double up.

Christopher Trang Eliminated in 5th Place ($44,677)

Christopher Trang

Christopher Trang opened to 350,000 from under the gun and Maxime Heroux three-bet to 895,000 from the small blind. Trang called to put himself at risk and the two players tabled their hands.

Christopher Trang: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}
Maxime Heroux; {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

Heroux had the preflop advantage and Trang needed to improve in order to preserve his tournament life. He picked up some additional outs on the {8-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds} flop, but the {K-Diamonds} turn gave Heroux a commanding lead, and the {A-Diamonds} river was too little too late for Trang, so Heroux took the pot to end Trang's deep run in this event in fifth place for $44,677.

Mehmood Doubles Through Varnell

[user339870] • Niveau 31: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Action folded around to the blinds and Craig Varnell raised to 300,000 from the small. Omar Mehmood called from the big and the two players saw a flop of {Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. Varnell bet the pot for 600,000, Mehmood jammed for 865,000, and Varnell called with a covering stack.

Craig Varnell: {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}
Omar Mehmood: {J-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Varnell had the lead with kings up but Mehmood had plenty of outs with straight and flush draws. The {7-Hearts} on the turn gave Mehmood his flush and left Varnell drawing thin. The {5-Spades} river changed nothing and Mehmood took the pot to double up.
