Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Bardah Makes It Rain with a Double

Ronnie Bardah

From under the gun, Jeff "MrRain" Banghart raised to 58,000. Action folded to Ronnie "Ronasty" Bardah on the button and he reraised to 134,000. After the blinds folded, Banghart made the call.

The two of them saw the flop come down {9-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and Banghart checked. Bardah slid out a bet of 163,000. After about 30 seconds, Banghart moved all in, having Bardah covered. Bardah tanked for a little bit and then made the call.

Bardah held the {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} and Banghart the {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}. Bardah's queens were in front and he needed to dodge a king or some miracle running cards to stay alive.

The turn card brought the {5-Hearts} and the river a clean {5-Spades}. Bardah made queens and fives to double up. After counting down his stack, Bardah doubled to over 1.8 million in chips. Banghart was left with 845,000.
