McCormick Finds a Double

• Level 16: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

On the last hand before the dinner break, Dean Bui opened to 8,000 from early position and Tom McCormick potted to 30,000, leaving him with just about 20,000 behind. Bui made the call and the flop was {5-Spades}{a-Hearts}{2-Clubs}.

Bui threw out enough chips to put McCormick all in and McCormick snap-called, tabling {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}. Bui turned over {8-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and needed to find two runners to eliminate McCormick.

The board ran out {5-Clubs}{3-Clubs} though, and McCormick received the much needed double up.
