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: () / / ()
Hoyt Corkins: (X-X) / — fold
Hastings: () / / ()
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.
