Nines Give Jun Chen the Quick Double

Carlos Chang

Jun Chen has just put his stack in a very strong position after doubling up against Carlos Chang.

Pre-flop, PokerStars Team Asia Pro Bryan Huang made a raise to 13,000 from the button and small blind Jun decided to ante it up to a total of 48,000. Action then went over to Carlos, who went all-in with his stack of over 300,000!

Bryan got out of the way and it was up to Jun, who thought for a while and made the call:

Carlos: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Jun: {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Jun was ahead with the pocket pair and his outs grew considerably more when the flop cae {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}.

He would need another nine or club to seal the deal and he got both: the {8-Clubs} landed on the turn to give him his flush and a {9-Spades} came on the river to pretty much add insult to injury for Carlos.

Carlos will need to grind his stack back up again after losing about 145,000 on that hand.
