Wally Sombero Doubles Up

Wally Sombero

Wally Sombero, widely considered as the "Godfather of Philippine Poker", has just gotten back into contention after doubling up his short stack.

Pre-flop, a raise and re-raise sequence ended up with Wally shoving all-in and a lone opponent making the call.

Wally: {9-}{9-}
Opponent: {a-}{k-}

Wally was ahead with the pocket pair and put a stranglehold on the hand as the flop came {j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades} to give him a set.

It was all over by the turn as the {j-Hearts} landed, improving him to a full house.

The meaningless river {2-Clubs} was dealt and Wally raked in the chips to double to about 33,000.
