Big Slick Battle Doubles-up Phua

Derrick Phua

Big slick vs. big slick. One would double up, the other be left short-stacked.

Derrick Phua shoved all of his chips in the middle only to find an opponent who had a similar hand.

Phua: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Opponent: {A-}{K-}

Phua could have settled for a split but when the flop of {8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} came, he could taste the double-up.

The turn {2-Diamonds} would just give him the win that he sorely needs.
