The Mariakis Double-Up

Michael Mariakis

What to do when your tournament life is on the line? Go all-in! That's what was in the mind of Michael Mariakis who doubled up in his last hand.

With a flop of {J-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} Mariakis went all-in with his stack down to roughly 6000. An opponent with {A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} made the call hoping for a flush or an ace, and looking to bust out Mariakis who had {J-Spades}{2-Clubs}

The diamond nor the ace never came as Mariakis found a lease on life courtesy of the jacks. He's now up to 12000 in chips.
