Taking Turns Doubling


Just prior to the break, a pot took place between Thomas Gabriel and Isaac Haxton, well two pots actually.

In the first, there was about 125,000 in the pot and a flop of {2-Clubs}{K-Spades}{J-Diamonds} when Haxton checked from the big blind and Gabriel moved all in from middle position. Haxton called off for 65,000 with {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, and was well out in front against Gabriel's {K-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. Neither the {5-Hearts} turn nor {A-Hearts} river changed a thing, and Haxton doubled.

Two hands later, action folded around to Haxton on the button and he moved all in. This time it was Gabriel calling off for 171,000 total.

Haxton: {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Gabriel: {4-Hearts}{4-Spades}

The {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Clubs} flop was great for Gabriel, and the {Q-Clubs} turn left Haxton drawing dead. The meaningless {7-Spades} was put out on the river for good measure, and Haxton was left with just 48,000.
