Event #18: $10,000 Seven-Card Razz Championship

Martin Finds a Double

[user68268] • Level 14: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Jesse Martin

Two spots off the money, Jesse Martin was one of the shortest stacks in the field. Not anymore, though, as he successfully doubled up against Brian Hastings.

Martin: ({A-}{4-}) / {6-}{3-}{9-}{8-} / ({7-})
Hoyt Corkins: (X-X) / {2-}{9-}fold
Hastings: ({4-}{3-}) / {2-}{7-}{4-}{Q-} / ({8-})

Martin completed the bet on third, and Corkins raised. Hastings called behind, and then Martin called as well.

"Good luck, Jesse," said Brandon Shack-Harris from across the table to Martin, knowing he had only a few thousand in chips behind.

On fourth street, Martin led with a bet, Corkins folded, Hastings raised, and Martin called all in for 11,000 total. When the hands were turned up, it was Martin at risk with a draw to a six-four low against Hastings' draw to a seven-four low.

After all the cards were run out, Martin finished with a seven-six low, beating Hastings' eight-seven to double up.
