Event #14: $3,000 Limit Hold'em

Heartberg Cracks Aces to Double Up

Dmitry Gromov raised under the gun and Jeremy Heartberg three bet. Gromov made it four bets, and Heartberg called. The flop looked to provide plenty of action as it came {10-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{a-Hearts}, and sure enough it did, as the two got in a raising war that ended with Heartberg getting his chips in the middle.

Heartberg: {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
Gromov: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}

Amazingly, neither player had a heart, as Gromov flopped top set but Heartberg had flopped broadway. Heartberg needed to fade the board pairing, and he did that as it came {4-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, and Heartberg doubled up to 120,000. Gromov, understandably upset that his aces had been cracked, began to say what sounded like some not so happy russian words, as he dropped to 170,000 after the hand.
