Event #9: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Big Double for Louviere

Chad_Holloway • Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

A preflop raising war resulted in Christopher Louviere getting his stack of 32,400 all in and in a dominant position against his opponent.

Louviere: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Opponent: {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}

Both players shared a queen, which meant Louviere's superior kicker made him a heavy favorite. The {10-Spades}{a-Clubs}{k-Clubs} flop brought a king, but that was no sweat for Louviere as he also found an ace. Neither the {10-Clubs} turn nor {5-Diamonds} rover changed a thing, and Louviere received an early double.
