Quach Stack Triples in Two Hands

• Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Jordan Dhooghe raised from early-middle position to 4,500 before Daniel Quach announced a re-raise all in from the big blind for his remaining 14,400. Dhooghe decided to put Quach at risk and was surprised to find that his {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} was well ahead of the {A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} of Quach.

The flop was unfriendly to our chip leader though as it rolled off {10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. The turn and river brought no help to Dhooghe and Quach doubled up.

The very next hand, action folded around to Quach in the small blind and he decided to limp. The two players saw a {10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} flop. Quach check called a bet of 4,000 from his opponent before both players checked the {7-Clubs} turn. The river was the {4-Hearts} and Quach bet 5,000 and his opponent called. Quach flopped the Jack high strait and has now turned his 14,400 stack into 44,000 chips.
