Eskenazi Doubles Through De Meulder

[user169806] • Level 5: 100-200, 0 ante

The action was on Belgium's Christophe De Meulder in middle position and he set the price to play at 725 on the {9-Clubs}{6-Spades}{A-Spades} flop. Scott Eskenazi, on the button, was De Meulder's sole opponent and he called.

The turn brought the {J-Clubs} into play and De Meulder announced pot, but before he could get his chips into the middle, Eskenazi had called all-in.

De Meulder: {K-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for the club flush draw.
Eskenazi: {J-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for two pair.

After burning a card, the dealer placed the {6-Diamonds} onto the river and Eskenazi doubled to 9,100, while De Meulder plummets to a still respectable 8,375.
